The Co-operative Bank has announced plans to close 37 branches and confirmed it will roll out a rebrand that will see the Britannia name disappear from the high street.

Branches are being shut where there is another close by - on average within half a mile and in some cases next door to each other - as part of an overhaul following its merger with Britannia building society in 2009.
