Lloyds Bank has closed down, leaving a North Somerset village with no banks.

The High Street branch shut for the final time on Tuesday.

Signs outside the bank have already been torn down and the future of the building is uncertain.

Lloyds has decided to close a number of banks around the country, including its branch in Winscombe.

However, its exit from Yatton leaves villagers facing a trip to Clevedon or Nailsea to do any face-to-face banking.

That follows NatWest’s decision to close its branch in 2015 – that building in Pages Court is being transformed into a veterinary practice.
