Loan reclaim: New UK bank set to open

A new high-street bank is set to be launched in the UK for the first time in over one hundred years.

The first Metro Bank branch will open in Holborn on July 29th, with a second branch opening in Earl's Court the following week.

The firm plan to offer a fresh approach to banking by allowing all customers to open accounts in-store, while bank cards will be issued within 15 minutes.

Metro Bank will operate outside traditional opening hours, with branches open for 12 hours a day on weekdays as well as six hours on a Sundays.

Anthony Thomson, the bank's co-founder and chairman, expressed his belief that his firm would be different from its rivals.

He said: "We plan to offer our customers a great retail experience, and we want to make banking fun for everyone."

Dog-owners and their pets will be warmly welcomed by staff as water bowls and dog biscuits will be available.
