Angry customers have taken to social media to vent their frustration at problems with Translink's app.

The mLink app allows passengers to use pre-paid tickets on public transport.

However, some customers experienced difficulties on Monday and Tuesday.

Translink say the problem was a result of "supplier capacity issues" which affected operators in the UK and parts of Europe, adding that the app is now working again.

In a statement, Translink acknowledged the purchase of new tickets "was not possible in some cases".

They have urged customers who are experiencing problems to contact them.
