The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) announced it will be closing 162 branches across England and Wales. 109 branches will close in late July and August 2018, and a further 53 branches will close in November 2018. As a result, the bank said that 792 jobs would be cut. Employees will be offered voluntary redundancy.

RBS branches in England and Wales, as well as the NatWest business in Scotland, had been embarked for a new “challenge bank” under the name of Williams & Glyn. However, this programme is no longer moving forward.

A spokesman for RBS commented: “We are no longer launching Williams & Glyn as a challenger bank, and we now have two branch networks operating in close proximity to each other; NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland, in England and Wales”.

After the closures, customers of RBS in England and Wales are being informed that they will be able to use NatWest branches instead for their everyday banking needs. RBS is also encouraging customers to start using online banking with the smartphone banking app.
