A Norfolk town's Santander bank is in its final days, while another has less than a month left.

The branch in Market Place, Holt, is due to shut its doors for the last time on Thursday, June 13, at 4pm.

The Santander in Aylsham's Red Lion Street will shut on July 4.

The Spain-based banking giant announced in January it was closing the branches, along with three others in Norwich, Newmarket and Stowmarket.

As part of the firm's national restructure, 100 Santander branches will also be refurbished as part of a £55m plan.

Susan Allen, the firm's head of retail and business banking, said the decision came as ever more bank users were deserting high street branches in favour of internet banking. She said: "The way our customers are choosing to bank with us has changed dramatically in recent years, with more and more customers using online and mobile channels."
