A total 631 customers used the counter or the immediate deposit machine at least four times in six months from November 2023 - with the most popular demographic being aged between 55 and 74, the report said.

The bank added that 79 per cent of customers have used other branches, online banking or telephone banking as an alternative in the six months from November 2023. Addressing the closure, Halifax said: "Before we close any branch, we look at how our customers are managing their money and using the branch. Most customers are now using our mobile app, internet banking or calling us instead, which means they are using branches, including the Cosham branch much less."
