Christmas is just a matter of days away, and the Royal Mail is experiencing delays. The postal service is endeavouring to do its best and get parcels delivered on time but they have updated customers on the areas which are currently affected. 

In terms of air, rail and road, Royal Mail’s networks operated to schedule over the weekend. 

However, the mail centres reported some issues. 

Not all mail was processed or despatched to schedule over the past 24 hours in certain mail centres. 

As a result, they may be delivered slightly later than expected.

Royal Mail said: “We aim to deliver to all addresses we have mail for, six days a week. 

“In a small number of local offices this may temporarily not be possible due to local issues such as COVID-related self isolation, high levels of sick absence, resourcing, or other local factors.

“In those cases we will rotate deliveries to minimise the delay to individual customers. 

“We also provide targeted support to those offices to address their challenges and restore our service to the high standard our customers would normally receive.”
