Card payment machines are currently down across the country, as shoppers are forced to leave trolleys full of shopping stranded in stores.

One Bracknell resident claimed that no stores in The Lexicon are accepting card payments, as well as Aldi, Lidl, Tesco and Morrisons. 

Natwest posted on Twitter stating they are looking into the issue of cards not working. 

The tweet read: "We are looking into reports of card payments being declined at the moment, thank you for your patience."
