the woman behind the grill/window said it was bank policy not to accept more than 5 bags of coins.

Non-plussed I emptied all 10 banks onto the counter and said, "There you go. It's not in bags now, is it!".

Lots of counting and mumbling later, amount accepted into bank account,
and a complaint made re the incident got me a £10 payment via the banking ombudsman. Good day after all.

The point being : Stand your ground on this crap!
