Two NatWest branches in south London are among 43 across England that are set to permanently close.

The closures will take place between January to March 2023, the bank confirmed.

The decision on the closures comes as most bankers are shifting to mobile and online banking, according to a NatWest spokesperson. 

The south London branches which are set to close are 128 Balham Road in Clapham, and 209 Lower Addiscombe Road in Croydon.

A spokesperson for NatWest said that online banking is faster and easier for bankers to manage their financial lives.
