Santander is set to close its branches in Wembley and South Harrow, as well as others in London - according to reports. 

It has been widely reported this morning (Friday, July 2) that the bank will close 75 high street outlets, having previously confirmed 111 would shut before the end of summer. 

The news follows yesterday’s report that fashion retailer GAP was also shutting all shops in favour of trading online only.
