Branches of Co-op Bank to close in Yorkshire The branches of the bank which are set to close are in Bradford, Harrogate, Rotherham, Wakefield and York. The Co-op Bank's chief executive, Andrew Bester, said was sorry for the cuts, which he also blamed on the current record low-interest rates.

He said we are not immune to the impact of recent events, with the historically low base rate affecting the income of all banks and a period of prolonged economic uncertainty ahead, which means it's important we reduce costs and have the right-sized operating model in place for the future," he said.
