Two branches of Clydesdale Bank in Dumfries and Galloway are set to close, as the bank announces 40 branches closures across Scotland.

200 jobs in the country will be axed and customers will now have have to travel 17 miles to their nearest branch in Dumfries.

The company put the decision down to a rise in people opting for mobile and internet banking.

Scores of jobs are set to go in the region after Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank announced it is to close 79 branches nationwide.

The Unite union said more than 400 jobs would go and labelled the decision "deeply devastating" to the employees.

The closures amount to a third of the bank's branches and is the largest-ever closure plan by the company which will radically change the face of the bank, according to Unite.

Yorkshire Bank will close 39 branches and Clydesdale 40.

The company said the number of customers using their bank for day-to-day transactions across the industry had fallen by a third since 2011, while there had been a "sharp and sustained increase in digital and mobile engagement".

Where will the axe fall in our region - and how far to the nearest branch?
