Merseyside has been hit by 19 closures announced by the NatWest Group.

NatWest has announced it is set to close a further 18 branches across the UK as the mass departure of banks from our high streets continues. 

A wave of closures from the likes of Barclays, Lloyds and Halifax has seen hundreds of branches close their doors in recent years as more customers are moving to digital banking.

The NatWest Group said it will shut 18 NatWest branches and one Royal Bank of Scotland branch in 2024, in addition to 142 already set for closure this year.

In Merseyside, the Prescot Road branch in Liverpool will close on March 5. Ormskirk will lose its bank on Moor Street on February 27.

NatWest said the latest series of closure comes as the average number of transactions made fell by 60% in the four years to January 2023, as more customers turned to online banking.

This comes after 578 announced branch closures across the UK this year, with Barclays leading with 185 site closures in 2023, followed by 112 Lloyds branch closures and 72 Halifax sites closing their doors.
