Bakewell's RBS branch will close later in the year.

Two Derbyshire Royal Bank of Scotland branches are among 162 across England and Wales that will close this year.

The company announced yesterday that 162 branches were to close with the loss of 792 jobs. Staff are being offered voluntary redundancy.

The Bakewell branch will close on July 26 and the Long Eaton branch will close on August 29.

An RBS spokesperson said: "We realise this is difficult news for our colleagues and we are doing everything we can to support those affected. We will ensure compulsory redundancies are kept to an absolute minimum.”

Royal Bank of Scotland in England and Wales and Natwest retail banking business in Scotland were due to be launched as a separate 'challenger bank' under the name Williams and Glyn, but this is no longer going ahead.

The spokesperson added: "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 & Wales.

“As a result we have had to review our overall branch footprint in England and Wales and we’ve made the difficult decision to close a number of Royal Bank of Scotland branches. “Customers of Royal Bank of Scotland in England & Wales will be able to use NatWest branches instead for their everyday banking needs.”
