A HIGH street bank has announced its Barrow town centre branch is due to close.

Barclays is closing nine branches across the country, including on Dalton Road.

It is due to close its doors on November 17.

Explaining the reasons behind the closure, Barclays told its Barrow customers: "Back when we opened this branch, visiting us in person was one of the only ways to do your banking.

"Now, as there are lots of ways to manage your money without even leaving your home, we’re seeing many customers choosing to bank using our app, and Online or Telephone Banking.

"This has had a big impact on the number of customers coming in to see us."
