RBS chief executive defends branch closures

The chief executive of the Royal Bank of Scotland has defended its closure of Scottish branches saying mobile banks serve 440 communities.

Ross McEwan was responding to campaigns against the closure of 52 branches this spring.

A further 10 of the most remote rural branches are under threat and their usage is being reviewed.

His comments came as RBS reported a profit of £792m for the first three months of the year.

That was up from £259m for the same quarter last year.
