People may have woken up to an unpleasant surprise this morning when direct debits on rent payments to Havering Council were taken out early.
The administration error may cause people to incur bank charges for having insufficient money in their accounts to cover other direct debits.
A spokesman for the council apologised profusely.
He said: “We apologise for this error and if you have incurred charges we will reimburse these.
“Please send a copy of the bank statement showing the charges to email@example.com.”
