I have concerns over the rate that cash machines and local banks are disappearing throughout the UK. 

I don't use external cash machines, as they can be easily be electronically tampered with by fraudsters to get details and money. 

I wouldn't feel safe standing in a queue to draw money either, not with the amount of robbery and violence that is increasing on the streets of our country. So I only use cash machines inside my bank to draw out money. I feel they are more secure with staff watching and checking the machines regularly.

The banks are disappearing off the high street. Action needs to be taken to stop this happening, otherwise there won’ be any left, then what will we do?
