Lloyds Banking Group said customers who find their nearest branch is closing will have access to at least one free-to-use ATM within half a mile.

Customers can also access some Lloyds and Halifax services through the Post Office.

You may also be able to access a mobile branch service, although the exact time and location changes each month.

Russell Galley, Director of Consumer Relations at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “Our customers have more choice than ever about how they bank with us.

“As our customers do more online, visits to some stores have decreased by up to 85% over the last five years.

“Alongside our digital, online and phone services, we will continue to invest in our branches, but they need to be in the right places where they are well used.”

Once all previously announced closures are complete, Lloyds Banking Group will have 1,321 branches. This will consist of 646 Lloyds Bank locations, 510 Halifax locations and 165 Bank of Scotland locations.
