The bank has added that customers in need of a free cash machine will be able to find one within a mile of each of the closures. A Lloyds spokesperson said: “It remains true that online and mobile banking continue to grow, as branch usage falls. On average, visits to these 28 branches have dropped by 60% since 2016, while we now have 18.6 million regular online banking customers and over 15 million mobile app users.”

According to the Daily Star, the branches closing range from Norfolk to Devon and Manchester to Kent. The full list of bank branches closing is below, with the first closing down as early as August 22.
