ANOTHER bank will close down its branch in a Herefordshire town, with a councillor expressing his anger at the decision.

Lloyds has revealed that it will be closing its branch in the Ross-on-Wye high street at the end of this year.


In an email sent to customers, Lloyds bank said: "Before we close, we look at how customers are managing their money.

"Most customers are now using our mobile app, internet banking or calling us, which means they are using branches, including the Ross-on-Wye branch, much less.

"We'll be closing our Ross-on-Wye branch."

Councillor Ed O'Driscoll, former town mayor, said on social media: "Angry to learn Lloyds bank is closing in Ross this December.

"This will have a detrimental impact on town footfall and residents who rely on it.

"Shameful to make this type of closure!"

It follows the recent closures of HSBC and Barclay's in the south Herefordshire town, which will leave Santander as the only bank in Ross-on-Wye.
