Letter: Virtually safe?

Sir: A great deal of space and time is being given to telephone banking and other developments likely to lead to the closure of high-street banks, but I have yet to see any mention of the future of a very important service which these establishments provide: providing safe storage for valuable items such as jewellery and confidential papers.

Many thousands of people are prepared to pay a small fee to ensure that items such as these are safe but reasonably accessible. Will someone please tell us whether this service will still be available in the future, and if so how it will be provided?
