It is the latest bank to say that customers are switching to digital services as they close branches.

The closures come on top of the 164 closures announced in 2020. Around 150 jobs are affected, though TSB said people will be offered alternative roles.

“Closing branches is an incredibly difficult decision, but we have to respond to changes in the way people bank and provide the right mix of services for all of our customers now and in the future.

“These changes allow us to maintain a wider branch presence across the country. They also have a significant investment program with them to upgrade the branches to better meet the needs of the customers. And, where to reach the nearest branch. We will launch more ‘pop-up’ services in communities.”

Trade union Unite called the move a “bitter blow”. MPs can also be criticized.

TSB Chief Executive Debbie Crosby is set to become Nationwide’s next boss.

However, the move may come as a blow to those opportunities.

The bank dates back to 1810 when the trustee looked after the finances of the poor working as a savings bank.

The slogan was famous for “the bank that likes to say yes”, but more recently “local banking for the UK” has been used.

TSB is now owned by Spanish giant Sabadell.

It added: “By the end of the year, TSB will have upgraded approximately 140 branches to help provide the best experience for TSB’s personal and business customers, including introducing new technology and creating a more open and flexible layout.” The bank has already opened ‘pop-up’ services in 41 communities across the country where it takes longer to reach the nearest branch. Following this announcement more Ten are planned.”

TSB said it has seen a “significant reduction in branch utilization” in recent years and that it sees “no prospect of branch transactions returning to pre-COVID levels”.
