A branch of the Halifax bank is to close in York city centre.
The Davygate branch will shut as part of major cutbacks by parent company the Lloyds Banking Group.
It has announced the closure of 49 branches – with the loss of 1,200 jobs – in a further blow to Britain’s high streets.
Forty-one Lloyds branches and eight Halifax branches are to go.
Lloyds said it hopes to redeploy affected staff where possible, with compulsory redundancies a “last resort”.
The branches – including the Davygate Halifax – will close between July and October this year.
