A mobile bank will be available in Ottery following the closure of the town’s last bank this week.

The Lloyds branch in Silver Street officially closed its doors on Wednesday.

It follows the closure of Barclays and Natwest, which left the town in 2015.

The banking group has begun providing a mobile service, which can be found in the Land of Canaan car park two days a week.

Lloyds will monitor usage of the service and will consider other days and opening hours.
