The Bankside branch of NatWest - opened just four years ago - closed its doors for the last time on Monday.

Closure of Bankside bank leaves SE1 with two NatWest branches

This year has seen NatWest close half of its four SE1 branches, with the Tower Bridge bank also shutting for good.

NatWest gave six months notice of the closure of the Bankside branch in Southwark Street.

The bank closed on Monday and less than 24 hour later, the ATM had already been boarded up and the interior of the branch was being stripped.

Now the London Bridge and Lambeth North branches are the last remaining SE1 outlets for NatWest.
