Anyone have access to the article as its behind a paywall and i havnt seen anymore articles about it.Also reading on a F.book group that Barclays aswell as Lloyds are doing the same.barclays have been slowly shutting accounts for 5 years or so.Both if you cannot provide a U.K address. Whether a uk address of a property you still own but dont live in is ok who knows but i presume uk resident. This could cause big problems for many people. Pensions/rents etc being paid into them. I have a Lloyds account but theres about 20 quid in it and its not used for anything.but i have savings accounts with others which would cause big problems if they started shutting them had enough hassle when Leeds B.S shut in Gib. But family and friends have pensions and rents paid in. What are they supposed to do :shock:
