Faulty cash machine sends homeless on holiday

‘A group of homeless people in Holland who withdrew more than £70,000 from a faulty cash machine are believed to be on a Spanish beach.

The homeless people had been given special state social security cash cards which allow them to take out up to £100 a time.

But a computer glitch at a Fortis Bank cash machine in Rotterdam meant they could withdraw an unrestricted amount of cash, newspaper De Volkskrant reported.’
