Commenting on the announcement by Santander of the closure of 140 of their branches, George McNamara, Director of Policy and Influencing at Independent Age, said:

“Once again, thousands of people around the UK are set to lose a local bank branch. With increasingly large distances between bank branches, this can cause difficulties for customers who rely on public transport.

"Banks must ensure that all customers can access services, advice and offers using their preferred method of communication, whether that be over the internet, on the phone or in person.”
