A CRITICAL financial service in the community says it will stay open through lockdown to help local people.

The Tail O' the Bank credit union is operating with limited hours at the moment.

They have thanked members for their patience and understanding during these difficult times.

A spokeswoman said: "The wellbeing of both our staff and members is our top priority."

From next week they will be open from 10am to 3pm Monday and Thursday, and on Saturdays from 10am to noon.

On Tuesday and Friday the Kilblain Street office will be closed but members can access help by email on those days.

The service is completely closed on Wednesdays.
