Terry Staff, Community leader for Barclays in Suffolk said: “There has been extensive rainwater damage to the branch over the weekend.

“Our contractors are on site assessing the damage and we are hoping to reopen on Wednesday.

“We have staff outside the branch advising customers on their options which include using the post office in Tower Ramparts and we have extra staff at our branch at Woodbridge Road.
