Short-Term Money Market
A five-year-old British boy pushed a bank door and it opened - 19 hours after it was supposedly locked up last weekend. Oliver Pettigrew wandered into the HSBC branch in Easingwold, North Yorkshire, as his father used a cash machine outside. They called police after walking right up to the vault of the deserted bank. An HSBC spokeswoman said there was a "malfunction" with the catch on the door. She said customers' savings had not been at risk.
