These are the images showing what is claimed to be London's first "drive-thru" bank in Southall .

Metro Bank will open the service on Friday (October 23) which gives customers the chance to withdraw money, pay in cash and cheques from the comfort of their own cars.

The service, which will come with two cashiers during opening hours, falls in line with the opening of a new Metro Bank store in Unit 8 in Hayes Bridge Retail Park.

Residents are invited to join colleagues for the opening ceremonies on Friday (October 23) and Saturday (October 24,) which will feature live music, stilt walkers, popcorn and balloons.

Regional director at Metro Bank, James Baughan, said: “Metro Bank’s model is simple – we want to give customers unparalleled levels of service and convenience, whether that’s in store, online, by telephone or even from the seat of their car."

According to the bank, around 25 people have been employed from Southall at the branch.

The "drive-thru" banking service will be open:

8am to 8pm Monday to Friday

8am to 6pm Saturday

11am to 5pm on Sunday and bank holidays
