HSBC has been criticised after announcing it will shut two of its branches in Flintshire later this year.

Its branch in Ewloe will close on 11 November and the one in Caergwrle on 9 December.

Alyn and Deeside AM Carl Sargeant has written to HSBC and said banks had a "role to play in their communities and a responsibility towards them".

HSBC blamed a rise in telephone and internet banking for the drop in people using branches.
