Anger af­ter ATM shuts down

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Cam­bus­lang Main Street was left with­out a work­ing ATM twice last week.

How­ever, Royal Bank of Scot­land has in­sisted this was a tem­po­rary ar­range­ment.

One ATM is now no longer in use af­ter the clo­sure of the Cly­des­dale Bank, while a sec­ond at Corky’s is also no longer in ser­vice.

That left one ma­chine at the site of the old Royal Bank of Scot­land, but that was out of ser­vice on both Mon­day and Thurs­day last week, leav­ing many res­i­dents and busi­nesses fu­ri­ous. An­ge­line Coyle, who runs the pop­u­lar Tea Bay cafe on the Main Street, said: “Peo­ple are al­ready stay­ing away from the Main Street be­cause there isn’t a bank and now they couldn’t even get any money.

“This has had a mas­sive im­pact on the street. I am on my knees right now.”

Many oth­ers took to Face­book to ex­press their anger.

But a spokesman for Royal Bank of Scot­land said their ATM had now been re­filled and there were no plans to re­move it.
