Whether it's down to customer behaviour, cost-cutting or both, banks are closing branches left, right and centre. This year alone, RBS/NatWest is to close 259 across the country - a quarter of its network.

So this week, we wanted to know when you last used your main bank's branch. We last did this poll a year ago, so let's see if things have changed.

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
