A spokesman said: "We have had to reduce opening hours at our Malvern branch, as some of our colleagues are unwell.

"Our priority is the safety of both customers and colleagues and we are keeping these reduced hours under review.

"Customers can continue to bank with us over the phone, online and through our mobile app and we also have another branch in Worcester, which is open six days a week."
