Three East Riding branches of one of the UK's biggest banks are to close next year.

TSB's banks in Brough, Willerby and Market Weighton will all shut their doors for the final time during the course of 2020 following the firm's announcement 82 branches will close nationally.

Four hundred jobs are thought to be at risk up and down the UK after bosses announced they were cutting back locations to refocus on profits.

It is understood they will try to find new roles for employees where possible.

The Willerby branch will close in May, according to the company which announced its full list of stores to close on Thursday. Banks in Brough and Market Weighton will shut in July.

Explaining the decision to shut the Willerby branch, a spokesman for the company said: "We have seen a fall in the number of people using the branch and only around 20 customers regularly use the branch each week now.

"85 per cent of the branch customers actually already use other branches, mobile or online to do their banking needs.

"We will be writing to impacted customers so that we can help them, they can obviously continue to use other TSB branches or their local Post Office on the Square, which is around 100 metres away."

The firm says just 21 customers use the Brough site per week, while adding 83 per cent of customers already have banking alternatives in place.

Speaking earlier this week, TSB boss Debbie Crosbie set out the firm's three-year plan, in which she pledged to push investment in digital products which are seen as a way to reduce staffing.

"The plan we're sharing today involves some difficult decisions, but it sets TSB up to succeed in the future," she said.

"Taken together, these changes will help us to serve more customers, better, for the long-term.

"With a trusted brand, modern platform, and national presence, TSB is well placed to deliver - but we need to make changes to enable us to compete.

"Our new strategy positions TSB to succeed in a challenging external environment at a time when we know customers want something different and better from their bank."

The latest news comes in a tough retail environment for British banks, with high streets suffering while online-only businesses are tempting customers with new types of accounts.
