A bank had it's doors left unlocked overnight after contractors forgot to lock the doors behind them when they left.To some people it would be a dream come true to walk past a bank to find it open and empty of staff, but at the Low Fell branch of Barclay's one member of the public quickly alerted the police when she entered the building to find it empty.

Police Officers arrived promptly and secured the site before calling the bank's own security firm to come and lock the building up.

A Barclay's spokesperson said that it was a very "rare incident" that had taken place and was being treated very seriously."We will be reviewing the circumstances with the third party contractor, whose standards seem to of fallen very short on this occasion".

Let's just hope the member of the public that alerted Police will get a nice reward from the bank for saving them what could of turned out to be thousands of pounds.
