Barclays has announced it will be closing its Beccles branch.

The closure comes two months after HSBC closed its branch in the town, much to the disappointment of many.

The Barclays branch will close on November 24.

A statement said: "Back when we opened this branch, visiting us in person was one of the only ways to do your banking.

"Now, as there are lots of ways to manage your money without even leaving your home, we’re seeing many customers choosing to bank using our app, and online or telephone banking.

"This has had a big impact on the number of customers coming in to see us."

Research carried out by the bank said that "19 customers use this branch regularly as the only way to do their banking" and "19pc of this branch’s customers have used nearby branches in the last 12 months".

The statement says that people who bank with Barclays can still use nearby Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth branches, or even do their banking at the WHS Smith post office or the Rigbourne Hill post office.
