Cyber-criminals are stealing signatures and personal details from hacked email accounts to try and dupe bank staff into releasing cash.

TSB Bank has posted a warning on its website after receiving an influx of fraudulent requests in the last week.

Chief executive Kevin Murphy said customers needed to remain vigilant about the risks posed by hackers.

"They have clearly compromised somebody's email and got access to contact details and signatures. It's quite sophisticated," he said.

Murphy said all affected customers had been alerted, and none had lost money.
