The high street bank has announced further closures as customers move more towards online banking.

Branches will be closing in Redditch, London and Newquay as well as Sudbury, Oadby and Birmingham, this summer.

Currently, Barclays branch opening times vary, with some open until 5.30pm.

However, starting on August 7, almost all branches will open 9.30am to 3pm, Monday to Friday, with the counter open the full time.

Barclays Local is the largest network of alternative branch formats in the UK, with a presence in over 200 communities and a further 70 Barclays Local sites planned by summer 2023.

Barclays will still provide in-person banking support through a range of solutions and formats, including branches, under a model reflective of all customer needs and usage.

Day-to-day transactional banking: such as cash or cheque deposits and withdrawals can be completed at the Post Office, with almost 12,000 Post Offices across the UK.

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 200 locations, based in libraries, town halls, mobile vans and our new banking pods.
