NatWest has closed its West Norwood branch, which opened in 1896, after staff became victims of crime for the seventh time in 11 years.
There was no warning to customers ahead of the decision to remove all the bank machines but a notice in the window claims the closure is for the 'health and safety of staff and customers', the Sunday Express has said.
NatWest said it had taken the decision in the interests of the safety of customers, staff and the community.
The decision has come after a spate of muggings near cash dispensers at NatWest and Barclays, now the street's only bank.
