Royal Bank of Scotland closes two Guernsey branches

The Royal Bank of Scotland says no jobs will be lost by closing two of its branches in the Bailiwick.

The bank announced the NatWest branch in St Martins and the RBS branch in St Peter Port will both shut at the start of September.

The company says the closures have come out a strategic review of the Bailiwick branches which aims to build a sustainable bank for the future.

It also says the move was a result of reduced usage at the branches.

Guernsey's Island Director, Rob Girard, says there will be no redundancies as a result of the closure, as staff will be redeployed elsewhere in the business.
