UK Services 

Air, Road and Rail

Some mail posted across the UK on Thursday for delivery in the Shetlands on Friday arrived later than planned. This is due to technical issues that affected the morning flight between Aberdeen and Lerwick airports.

A small amount of mail posted in the E, IG and RM postcodes for delivery in parts of the UK on Saturday may have arrived later than expected. This is due to a vehicle running late on Friday at the Romford Mail Centre.

A small amount of mail posted in the South west of England for delivery in parts of London and the South of England on Saturday may have arrived later than scheduled. This is due to issues with a vehicle travelling from the South West Distribution Centre on Friday evening.

There will be no deliveries or collections taking place in the TD12 postcode area today due to a local holiday in the Coldstream area. Normal services will resume tomorrow. 

Normal deliveries and collections of mail should be made in all parts of the UK today.
