TSB has announced which of its 82 branches are set to close next year.

The closures are expected to affect almost 400 members of staff across the country.

The bank said that it was cutting back its locations to refocus on profits, and will invest in its digital operations while customers move towards expecting self-service.

Announcing the closures on Monday, chief executive Debbie Crosbie said TSB would try to find new roles within the group for the 370 staff members thought to be affected.

The firm has today listed the branches, which are mostly older banks in less busy areas, that are set to close and when.

Robin Bulloch, Customer Banking Director at TSB, pledged to fully support customers through the transition.

He added: “We realise this is difficult news for our branch partners and will do everything to support those affected to offer voluntary redundancies and redeploy as many people as we can to other roles.”

TSB stressed that it had twice the number of branches per 10,000 customers in 2018 than the UK average.

The bank says it will continue to have a national branch network in Britain, with 65 per cent of the population living within four miles of a TSB branch.
