A third of Scottish banks lost
Since 2010, around a third of the scottish banks have been closed. This raises concerns about people’s access to cash. An analysis found that 610 banks were closed between 2010 and 2018. Edinburgh has most of the banks closed, cutting the numbers from 135 to 30. With the rise in digital payments, cash is still a necessity for more than 25 million across UK. A survey says that 75% of the SCottish population uses cash frequently.
