I would ring customer services as soon as he gets in. Its a 24 hr helpline for barclays. Just tell them what happened. They're usually pretty helpful, and at least you've logged the incident then.

It may be that they tell you to go speak to someone in the Abbey branch (who would probably then tell you to ring another helpline!) but these things generally get sorted.

I had a similar thing happen when I was in Sydney when I used my barclaycard in a machine and it didnt cough up. I rang them straight away and it was sorted.
