Santander has announced plans to close 111 branches across the country due to the shift to mobile and online banking.
The bank said it had taken the decision because fewer customers were choosing to bank in branch.
About 840 staff will be affected by the closures, although Santander promised to try to find them other jobs within the business.
Santander said the reduction in branch visits was a long-term trend that had been accelerated by the pandemic.
