Campaigners staged a fake wake to mourn the closure of a bank, which they claim could spell the death of the high street.
Barclays, in London Road, Isleworth, closed its doors for good last Friday (June 27), leaving Isleworth with just one bank.
But members of St John's Residents Association fear the loss of another bank branch and its replacement with a new supermarket represents a double whammy for local businesses.
The group's chairman Dominic West said: "As a customer I have been using that branch for years and it is a great pity that that the facility and the cash machines will no longer be available.
"The closure will affect many of the local traders who relied on it to pay their takings and who benefited from customers who would also use their shops."
The group has previously protested about the number of betting shops in the area, after a third outlet opened within 50 yards of an existing two.
