‘For shame!’ Royal Mail struck by even more delays due to Covid – 35 postcodes affected

Royal Mail is struggling to keep up with demand due to Covid-related issues, such as staff shortages. Consequently, there are more postcodes affected by delayed mail today than yesterday, meaning many Britons across the UK will be waiting days for their deliveries to arrive. Which areas are most affected?

The postal service has not only updated customers on which postcodes are affected by late mail, but also which mail centres.

Royal Mail explained that it operates an air, rail, and road network to move letters and parcels between its distribution hubs, mail processing centres, and delivery offices around the UK.

Although its air, rail, and road networks have been operating to schedule over the last 24 hours, there are some issues with the company’s mail centres.

Only one mail centre reported issues yesterday, while seven have been experiencing problems today.

Britons have yet again taken to social media over the past 24 hours to complain about missed or delayed mail.

Twitter user @Sutthausen said: “Posted a card from Colchester to Chelmsford (23 miles) on 7th December. Still not arrived.”

User @JackiHicks wrote: “Posted a Birthday Card to my niece in London on 10th December – 1st Class Signed For and she still hasn’t received it. I have opened an ‘enquiry’ with @RoyalMail but I’ve had no further updates.”

User @CasualChess added: “@RoyalMail straight up lying to journalists about postal delays of a month to some postcodes. We are understanding about Covid staffing shortages: not of dishonestly pretending the delays are a few days. Local groups have hundreds of residents reporting three week delays. For shame.”
