From The Guardian today

UK banks are closing more than 1,000 accounts every day

"Banks are closing more than 1,000 accounts every working day, according to new data that has fuelled the growing row over so-called “debanking” and prompted Nigel Farage to call for a royal commission to investigate what he said was a scandal.

Hours after the former Ukip leader revealed he was spearheading a website to campaign on behalf of people whose accounts had been shut, data revealed a big jump in the numbers of customers dumped by their bank."


Since i first posted, HSBC have now closed in town. That does leave us with NatWest, Lloyds, Nationwide, Santander and the Post Office. Luckier than most.

I do still use my NatWest branch every week and there are always other customers there too.
