CROWDS of people gathered around a popular high street ATM last night after it started giving out extra money.
Dozens of people could be seen standing on the street after they swarmed the cash machine in East Ham, London.
A mob of people were lined up at the NatWest machine, which was said to have been giving people double the amount of cash they withdrew.
The news travelled quickly and a heap of Brits braved the cold to try to get their hands on free cash.
Footage was shared online after 9pm last night telling people of the high street ATM's apparent flaw.
The clip was uploaded to X, formerly Twitter, with the caption: "Cash machine on East Ham High Street has gone rogue giving customers double cash."

NatWest today told The Sun: “Due to a one-off manual error, a number of transactions at one ATM dispensed more cash than the requested amount.
"This has since been fixed and customers can use this ATM as normal.”
It comes after NatWest recently scrapped its £7.6million payout to ex-boss Dame Alison Rose after the Nigel Farage banking scandal.

The bank said she did not qualify as a “good leaver” under its pay policies.
But no findings of misconduct were made against its former chief executive, who resigned in July.
Dame Alison, 54, misses out on £4.7million share awards and £2.9million in bonus and variable pay.
She will still collect £2.4million for a year’s pay plus £850,000 in former bonus shares.
She quit after confirming she was the source of a BBC story about Mr Farage’s bank account with Coutts, which is owned by NatWest.
Earlier this week the UK data watchdog apologised for suggesting she had breached data protection laws following its own probe into the closure of Mr Farage’s account.
Yesterday Dame Alison said she accepted NatWest’s decision, adding: “I’m pleased no findings of misconduct have been made against me.”
