Anger over Lloyds Bank branch closure at Hawarden

Residents have hit out over the closure of a Lloyds Bank branch in a Flintshire village.

Locals said the closure in Hawarden would leave it "a ghost town".

Bosses said it had been a "difficult decision" but it followed a review which found trade had fallen 20% in a year.

The closure on Thursday comes as Lloyds announced plans to double its branch closures, with 200 more set to vanish from High Streets by the end of 2017.
