This setback comes just two weeks after Barclays said it would be shutting 20 branches in April.

The banking giant has announced nearly 200 branch closures in recent years, as only 10 per cent of transactions take place face-to-face; more and more customers are shifting to online banking and using apps.

At the end of June 2023, the bank had 414 branches..

A Barclays spokesperson said: "As visits to branches continue to fall, we need to adapt to provide the best service for all our customers.

"Where there is no longer enough demand to support a branch, we maintain an in-person presence through our Barclays Local network, live in over 300 locations, based in libraries, town halls, mobile vans and our banking pod

"We also support access to cash with our cashback without purchase service, 24-hour deposit-taking ATMs and by working alongside the Post Office and Cash Access UK."
