The town with no free cash machines

The Metro ran a feature on the town of Burslem in Staffordshire, ‘where all the free cash machines have been taken away by banks’.

A series of banks, including Nationwide, NatWest and Lloyds, have closed over the last three years leaving only cash machines that charge between 95p and £3.50 to withdraw money. Business owners and shoppers in Burslem have said the lack of free cash machines has made things ‘very difficult’.

 Stoke-on-Trent city councillor Alan Dutton took things further, describing the situation as ‘absolute robbery’. Figures show that free cash machines closed at a rate of 250 per month in 2018.
