What can I do if my bank branch is closing?
Many banks and building societies are closing branches as customers move towards digital and online banking.
But it can leave those who rely on a physical branch stuck, particularly if you live in a rural area.
You do have some options if you've been left having to travel miles to get to your nearest branch.
You can use one of the Post Office's 11,635 branches to carry out most basic banking tasks.
However, you won't be able to open a new bank account or take out personal loans and mortgages there.
Some banks do run what's known as a "mobile banking service" though.
This is where your bank brings a bus to your local area that has the services usually available at your nearest branch.
It's worth calling your bank or building society to see if they offer such a service.
Other banks sometimes send "community bankers" to village halls, libraries and council buildings to meet customers.
If none of these options are available to you, it's worth seeing where your next nearest bank branch is to you.
