Coins don't count!

A Mother who saved up £235 in pound coins towards her family's holiday of a lifetime was outraged that her bank refused to accept the cash when she tried to pay it into her savings account. Marie Edwards took the bag of coins to the Halifax branch in Yate shopping centre but was told by a cashier and the manager that they would not take large deposits in coins.

She was told there was not enough room in the safe.

Mrs Edwards, who is taking her family on a dream holiday to Disneyworld, Florida, said she was stunned when the bank declined to count the coins into her account and then let her draw it out in notes.
