LINK to protect high streets

The cash machine network announced it will protect all retail centres in the UK with five or more qualifying retailers.

As of 29 August, where a high street is threatened with the loss of an ATM or Post Office, LINK will step in to ensure that an ATM is made available and paid for with funding from all the UK’s main banks and building societies. In addition, it has also announced that it will be directly commissioning a new ATM in five areas as part of a pilot scheme.
