A bank has announced another closure as it continues to axe branches up and down the country.

Natwest will close its site in Broadwater, Worthing, on May 16.

It comes as 23 branches across the UK are set to be closed by Natwest as more people move to online banking.

Two other branches in Sussex are also set to be shut this year.

The bank’s branch in Gatwick Road, Crawley, will close on May 11.

While the date for the branch in East Street, Shoreham, to close has yet to be decided.

In a notice on their website, Natwest said: “The way people bank with us has changed dramatically in recent years, with an increased demand for mobile and online services as customers benefit from a faster and easier way to bank.

“Closing a branch is a decision we take very seriously. We know it can affect people who are less confident with the alternatives we offer, and we'll always work hard to guide you through the changes and find the best way to serve you from now on.”
