A BANK in Dovercourt will close later this year after the number of customers using it fell dramatically.

NatWest in High Street has seen the number customers visiting the bank each week fall to just 34, a drop of nearly a fifth over the last few years.

Customers are choosing instead to bank via phone, app, online or at the Post Office.

The branch will officially close on July 25 and NatWest are taking measures to insure customers will still have access to banking in the area.
