Dozens of people have turned out in Glastonbury high street this afternoon to protest over the closing of Barclay's bank.

It closed its doors for the final time today, leaving the town with only one other bank, Lloyds - but this too, is set to close next month.

Residents of the town have been campaigning to keep at least one of their high street branches.

Protests as yet another high street bank closes its doors

The Mayor of Glastonbury is to lead a protest when Barclays bank closes its doors for the last time later.

Residents of the town have been campaigning to keep at least one of their high street branches. Two banks have already gone, Barclays makes the third closure and the final bank - Lloyds - will shut next month.

A protest planned for today (Friday 4) is yet another stand in a long campaign to persuade at least one local bank to stay.

Campaigners have already created what they believe is the biggest ever bank queue in the town and created this campaign video:
