ROYAL Mail has warned customers of possible delays to mail collections and deliveries due to the Olympic Torch Relay.
It said: “We will still be collecting from business customers, Post Office branches and postboxes on the days of the Relay.
“However, road closures locally may mean some changes to the time we collect.”
Customers are urged to consider taking items directly to a post office or holding onto them until the following day, when officials expect a normal service to resum’.
Delivery of mail
Our local teams will be out delivering mail in your area on the day of the Torch Relay. Road restrictions may result in a short delay or some temporary disruption to mail deliveries. We will deliver to businesses and residential addresses provided we can access them and will endeavour to deliver Special Delivery™ items due delivery that day in affected areas.
