Six city TSB branches are to close indefinitely amid a "significant shift in customer behaviour" as more people bank online. 

The closures come as part a UK-wide cut, which will see a total of 164 branches shut across the country and the loss of 960 jobs. 

Banks in Glasgow scheduled to close by June 2021 include branches in Anniesland, Dennistoun, Drumchapel, Easterhouse, Partick and Springburn.

Bosses said the closures were not an "easy decision", however the issue had been accelerated by the coronavirus pandemic. 

Robin Bulloch, TSB customer banking director, said: "These decisions are the most difficult we take, but we must always be guided by our customers - and we are clearly witnessing a substantial shift towards digital banking.

"We operate a more extensive branch network than most other banks in Scotland, including some much larger than TSB, and we need to reduce its size to reflect the changing needs of our customers and a fast-evolving operational environment.

"TSB remains committed to offering high-quality banking services in branches across Scotland.
