Branches in Surrey, Cambridge and Kent are among those set to close across a week in late June this year.

That takes the total number of Barclays branches closing to 68 this year.

Some eleven branches have shut their doors for good in March, with 22 closing in April and seven more ending operations in May.

Another 14 branches will close in June, according to an earlier announcement taking the total for the month to 28.

Barclays have said more people are choosing to do their banking on their phone or computer, rather than in person.

Banks have generally tried to encourage their customers to use online and mobile banking in recent years, because it is usually more efficient for the client and saves on rent, staffing and energy costs for the company.

But advocates for physical branches say some older people, as well as those less comfortable with technology, prefer to go into banks to speak to real people about their money.
