A little short of money? Britain's lowest cashpoint is just 15 inches off the ground

Britain’s lowest cashpoint could leave you a little short - as it stands just 15 inches off the ground.

The oddly-positioned cash dispenser outside a Sainsbury’s Local in Nottingham is so low even the wheelchair users it was meant for can’t reach the buttons.

People have to bend, squat or kneel to get down to screen level on what is thought to be Britain’s lowest ATM.

Musician Steve Drury, 27 saw the cash point as he toured with his band and posted a photo on Facebook.

H’e said: I couldn't believe it when I saw it. It was just so low to the ground and a man using it was squatting to try to get his money out.

'The poor guy must have done his back in. It was so low it looked incredibly uncomfortable.



Molly Kate Hancock commented: 'This makes no sense!'

The Sainsbury's Finance ATM appears to be too low for wheelchair users.

A spokesman for World of Mobility, a local shop selling wheelchairs and mobility scooters, said: 'Our wheelchairs are 30 inches up from the ground to the seat.

'That means the cash point would need to be at least 30 inches up, plus another 10 inches for someone to be able to reach the keys.'

Sainsbury's said: 'The ATM is located on a hill which caused it to be built so low to the ground.

'We have never had any customer complaints about this but we are looking at solutions to re-locate it.'
