Confident: Danske Bank chief executive Kevin Kingston

Northern Ireland should get a £2 billion "economic kick-start" when customers of the biggest local bank start spending again, its chief executive has said.

Danske Bank said its business and personal customers put an extra £2bn aside last year due to a lack of opportunities to spend and a lack of confidence.

Its mortgage lending had also remained strong with £82m growth across the year.
