Maybe we should have our own British bank and then it would not matter that another foreign company is leaving / closing.

Could be worse,
"Spain's Santander plans to close around 450 small domestic branches as part of an overhaul in response to rising regulatory costs and a push into digital services"

I guess it's due to internet banking.

However that doesn't help if you prefer to actually visit a branch.

It's my fault. I went overdrawn last year. They keep sending me the same message. 👇
