Second protest over bank closure today

The last of two protests over upcoming bank closures takes place today.

Residents in Peel will gather outside the Isle of Man bank on Atholl street this morning, following the IOM Banks' decision to close both its Castletown and Peel branches.

The closures - put in place for next January are down to 'further investments in digital banking' with more turning to online services.

The move has been met with heavy opposition from locals and politicans, who believe both serve as a lifeline for the elderly and vulnerable.

Today's protest is due to get underway from 10.30am, following a demonstration in Castletown yesterday.
