Royal Bank of Scotland axe 600 jobs in England

Around 600 jobs are being axed and 32 branches closed at Royal Bank of Scotland in the latest jobs cull at the UK's state-backed lender.

The job losses will impact its retail banking division, with around 200 roles going across London and the South East of England and almost 400 being cut in the Midlands, East and the North of the country, according to trade union Unite.

Unite said the job cuts come as 32 RBS branches are being shut, with many more seeing their opening hours reduced.
