The decision to close them was made after the banking company revealed that they had seen a 60% drop in customers going into branches since 2018.

A spokesman said: “Branches play an important part in our strategy but we need to have them in the right places, where they are well-used.

“We'll continue to invest in branches that are being used regularly, alongside our online, mobile app and telephone services.”
