He said: "This removes the ability for elderly people to access the doctors or indeed hospital appointments without travelling to Morpeth first.
"It makes it impossible for those who work in Ashington to get to work on time, those villages will then only be served once an hour by a bus that only goes to Morpeth.
"The alternative service does not enter Hadston it stops at the road entrance, therefore cuts off the shopping precient, doctors surgery, post office, chemist and all the other amenities in Hadston that serve the older population of North Broomhill and Togston.
"We've already received a number of complaints from residents about the changes and a simple trip to Ashington will turn in to a four bus journey which is simply not practical for residents.
"We will be taking this issue up with Arriva at the earliest opportunity."
