BRANCHES of Barclays Bank are to open on bank holidays for the first time.

The first bank holiday the branches will be open is this Friday, Good Friday, between 10am and 2pm.

Bank holidays have been an institution since 1871, but Barclays said it was making the changes to meet customer demand.

They will still be shut on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
