LONDON (Reuters) - Barclays BARC.L has written to Barclaycard holders to warn them their accounts will be closed on November 16 if their card is not linked to a UK address, as British banks continue to grapple with how to service expat customers after Brexit.

Barclays said it communicated the potential closures to affected customers earlier this month.
