Stewart Dickson MLA said: “This is a deeply worrying development. This branch provides an important service for people in Whitehead and I would like to see it retained.
“I will endeavour to meet with Whitehead residents who bank with the Northern Bank and others too to get their views on this. I will also be endeavouring to meet with representatives of the Northern Bank to discuss this important issue.
“The Northern Bank is the only bank with a branch in Whitehead and to lose this branch would be a retrograde step for Whitehead.”
