A notice in the window states the branch is not open due to a “gas incident”.

Visitors eager to use the bank have been turned away for the time being.

It is not clear yet if any emergency crews have been called to deal with the incident.

No further details about the closure have emerged yet via official channels.

However, the notice does point customers in the direction of other Barclays banks in Princes Street and in Woodbridge and Felixstowe.

The note reads: “Apologies, the branch is currently not open due to a gas incident.

“We will open as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.”
