An east Suffolk town centre bank will be closing later this year, it has been announced. 

TSB has confirmed that its branch in Felixstowe's Hamilton Road will close down.

The bank said this was part of its efforts to "move to a better balance of digital and face-to-face services".

The branch is expected to shut on Tuesday, September 10. 

According to TSB, the reasoning behind the closure was because more people are deciding to use online banking. 

A spokesman for TSB said: “The decision to close a branch is never taken lightly, but our customers are now doing most of their banking digitally and we need to move to a better balance of digital and face-to-face services.

“We remain committed to a national branch network and through innovation and integration with video, telephone, digital, branch and other face-to-face services TSB customers have more ways to bank with us than ever before.”

When the bank closes the next nearest branch will be in the Buttermarket street in Ipswich, more than 10 miles away.
