    MP Rosie Cooper has expressed her anger at the appalling decision by RBS to carry out 54 further branch closures, on top of the 162 closures earlier this year, with nearly half of the closures affecting branches in the North West of England.

    The latest announcement marks the death knell for RBS in West Lancashire, with branches at Burscough Bridge and Parbold set to close on 29 January, following Skelmersdale’s closure on 22 May this year and Ormskirk set to shut its doors on 27 November.

    The Royal Bank of Scotland, still 62.4 per cent owned by the taxpayer, will close the 54 branches with the loss of more than 340 staff.

    Yesterday an angry Cooper told QLocal: "RBS is a taxpayer funded bank who are simply withdrawing from the North of England.

    "Locally, there will only be two RBS banks, one in Liverpool and one in Southport.

    "This is simply not good enough. As the taxpayer owns 62.4 per cent of the bank, I am calling on the Chancellor to hold RBS to account and ensure that taxpayers are treated fairly wherever they live and are not just looking after those in the South of England.

    “RBS needs to explain why they have turned their back on the North West and explain why this area has been hit so much harder than the rest of the country.

    “Why should Northwest taxpayers’ money be used to prop up a bank which has practically disowned this region?

    "As long as they are getting our taxpayer pounds they don’t care that they are closing branches in areas where there isn’t a good transport infrastructure and that is penalising those who are elderly, infirm or don’t have their own transport. Taxpayers will also want to know what we are getting for our money if it’s not banks!”
