Thousands of Britons living in the EU will have their UK bank accounts closed by the end of the year because of the failure to agree a post-Brexit trade deal.

Lloyds, Barclays and Coutts have informed retail and business customers that they will lose their accounts before or when the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December and more banks are expected to follow suit.

Lloyds Banking Group has contacted its 13,000 customers, including in Portugal, warning them they must make alternative arrangements as the bank is no longer allowed to offer services.
