A consumer group has said two Norfolk postcodes are among the worst in the country for cash machine provision.
In a warning about proposals to review the number of ATMs around the country, Which? has analysed data on 70,000 cash machines around the UK.
It found 123 postcode districts which did not appear to contain a single ATM, with another 116 which just appear to have one, 37 of which charge a fee.
It listed PE32, the area which covers villages including Castle Acre, Litcham and Great Massingham, as a postcode district with particularly low ATM cover. It has a population of roughly 15,300.
And NR16, which covers areas including East Harling, Banham and Bunwell and has a population of 11,950, as another.
