TSB has announced the closure of one of its Cotswold branches next year.

The banking giant revealed the full list of 82 branches to be closed around the country earlier this week, with its branch in Moreton-in-Marsh set to close down in May 2020.

Cirencester's branch of TSB appears safe from closure.

Earlier this week, TSB announced that it was “slimming down” by closing 82 branches across the country.

Chief executive Debbie Crosbie said TSB is facing runaway costs and needs to take difficult decisions.

She said: “There is no doubt we have got challenges to face.

“Put simply, the biggest barrier for TSB’s future is that we’re much more expensive to run than our competition.”

She stressed the bank has around twice the number of branches per 10,000 customers as many of its rivals.

TSB customer banking director Robin Bulloch said: “We realise this is difficult 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.”
