BARCLAYS bank branches in the Old Town and Town Square in Stevenage will close in the autumn, it has been confirmed today (Monday).

Bank bosses have remained tight-lipped about the future of the high street bank in the town until now.

The Comet reported four weeks ago that Barclays plans to open new premises in the former Zavvi store in Stevenage town centre's The Forum, but was unable to confirm rumours the Old Town and Town Square branches would subsequently close.

A Barclays' spokesman said: "We will be relocating our Town Square and High Street branches in the autumn to a new flagship home in The Forum.

"We expect the new branch to be ready to move into in September, and nearer the time will display posters and flyers in our branches with the exact date.
