A chartered accountancy firm is closing its Keighley office.

Clough & Company will shut its Devonshire Street branch this summer. Operations are being centred on the firm’s headquarters at Cleckheaton.

All eight staff employed at Keighley will be relocated.

Steven Gash, practice chairman, pictured, said: “We invest heavily in the latest technology, and in order to maintain our position at the forefront of the industry we are about to make another significant investment which will give clients more access to their information over the internet.

“This means there will be less of a need for clients to visit our offices.”
