A high street bank has announced the closure of two of its Norfolk branches, leaving one village without a bank altogether.

Barclays has announced the closure of a number of branches nationwide, with its banks in Loddon and Cromer included in those given the chop.

The Loddon branch, which is set to close on December 15, is the village’s only bank, meaning residents will have to travel elsewhere for their banking needs.

A notice was also placed on the window of the Cromer’s branch on Tucker Street, stating it too will be closing - a week earlier on December 7.

Reports from Barclays stated both branches had been closed due to a declining number of counter transactions and customers using alternative means of banking.
