A FORMER building society is set to be converted into a funeral director’s shop.

Nationwide shut its branch in Brightlingsea High Street last summer.

The move came despite a campaign by residents, businesses and local politicians to keep the bank offices open.

However the site has now been sold to the East of England Co-op which plans to re-open it as part of its funeral service.

The Co-op said it was now considering what to do with the current funeral service shop in the town.
