Which? said almost 3,400 bank branches have been closed since January 2015, not including the 82 that are set to be lost at TSB.

It now has outlets in Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Chatham, Bluewater, Sheerness and Ashford.

The Barrhead branch in Arthurlie Street will close on April 29, 2020 followed by the Busby Road, Clarkston branch on July, 22, 2020.

Following the closures, 65% of the country's population will live within four miles of a TSB branch, the company said.

Fears for businesses as Barclays to close Ossett branchThe bank's branches in Ossett, Wakefield and Pontefract branches are not on the list of closures, though branches in Headingley, Skipton and Shipley will close.

However, no roles are to be axed on the Island as the branch remains open.

TSB will be left with a network of 454 branches after the closures.

Gloucestershire will lose two of its branches of TSB as part of the bank's decision to close 82 of its outlets and concentrate on its digital offering.

A statement said: "Today, a significant number of TSB branches have low customer numbers and transactions are decreasing year on year. To help address this, TSB is launching a range of new initiatives to help impacted customers with the transition", it said.

"We realise this is hard news for our branch partners and will do everything to support those affected to offer voluntary redundancies and redeploy as many people as we can to other roles".

It added: "Under the Access to Banking Standard we've committed to carrying out a local, comprehensive Branch Review to understand how any closures might affect the community, before we make the decision to close a branch".
