Lloyds and Halifax City branches set to shut during G20 protests
Branches of Lloyds TSB and Halifax in the path of the G20 protesters are to be shut for two days to protect customers and staff during what could be angry demonstrations against banks bailed out by the taxpayer.
It is understood non-essential staff are also being told to work from home on 1 and 2 April – the day that officials from the G20 countries are due to meet in ExCel to the east of the City.
The G20 Meltdown campaign is intending to converge on the Bank of England from four directions. Each set of protestors will march behind one of the “four horsemen of the apocalypse”.
