Anti-cuts activists opposed to the bank bailout occupied 40 branches across the country on Saturday, pilling on the pressure against RBS, Lloyds and Natwest.
The action co-ordinated by UK Uncut saw people set up "essential services" in banks, including creches, hospitals, libraries and job centres on Saturday.
Campaigners pointed out that the banking bailout had cost billions but had only led to super profits for the rich, while the government is gearing up to slash public spending.
In Islington, North London, 50 activists set up a laundry in an RBS branch in reaction to cuts to services for the elderly, including a much-needed laundry service.
Local Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn who took part in the action saluted UK Uncut: "The banks caused the crisis of 2008. Public money bailed them out and now the poorest pay the price."
Public anger surged following RBS's announcement that, after making a loss of £1.1bn, the 83 per cent publicly owned bank still paid out £950m in bonuses - including a £2m bonus for chief executive Stephen Hester.
