A FIVE-year-old boy spared a bank's blushes when he discovered it had been left unlocked.

Daniel Pettigrew raised the alarm with police when his son Oliver pushed open the door and entered an HSBC bank in Easingwold, North Yorkshire, when the branch was closed.

HSBC blamed the security lapse on a malfunction with the electronic door mechanism and reassured customers that no details were compromised in the incident.

Oliver's reward? A tenner placed in a bank account of his own.
