Lloyds Banking Group has announced it will close a further 48 branches, blaming a decline in visits by customers for the closures.

The Group will close 41 Lloyds Bank branches and seven Halifax branches, with Unite union saying this could lead to 178 job losses.

The announcement will cut the number of Lloyds Banking Group branches to 1,475, but of the closures the Group has announced, all have alternative access to cash within a third of a mile.

    Vim Maru, retail director for Lloyds Banking Group, said: “Like many other businesses, we’ve seen people using our branches less frequently in recent years, and this decline is continuing.

    “Our branches remain a fundamental part of how we serve our customers but we need to ensure the size of our branch network reflects the number of customers wanting to use them.”

    However, Unite said the move will deny thousands of customers access to vital services and cash.

    General secretary of the union, Sharon Graham, said: “The announcement by Lloyds Banking Group of closing a further 48 bank branches is a complete betrayal of the communities and staff who have long supported this highly profitable business.

    “This sector needs to start taking their corporate social responsibilities seriously and stop neglecting their obligations to their customers and workforce.

    “Banks are leaving people behind in the rush to close bank branches and force consumers to go cashless to boost their mega-profits. It’s a classic example of putting profits before people.”
