BARCLAYS Bank in Keighley will be closed today and tomorrow (October 20/21) for emergency work to be carried out on the building.

The bank says that due to problems with masonry, it has been necessary to temporarily shut the North Street branch for the safety of customers and staff and to allow for repairs to be completed.

A spokesperson apologised for any inconvenience caused and said it's hoped, weather permitting, that work will be done in time for the branch to reopen on Monday.
