Banks close 600 branches over the past year

More than 600 bank branches have closed across Britain over the past year, with rural areas worst affected, according to figures obtained by the BBC.

The banks say that demand for branches was falling, as more people switch to banking online.

Ben Thompson reports from Birchington-on-Sea in Kent, where the last remaining bank is due to close in June.
