The branch in Towngate is one of 54 to be axed across the UK, as the bank seeks to reduce overlap between its RBS and NatWest operations.

Customers are now being advised to visit the NatWest branch on Golden Hill Lane, which is a 15-minute walk away.

RBS branches in Adlington, Kirkham and Poulton-le-Fylde also closed this week and the Bamber Bridge branch is set to shut on January 29, 2019.
