Royal Mail has had to apologise after a problem with it’s new system meant that letters were being delivered as late as 6.30 in the evening.
Their system had problems due to a change over in how letters were delivered. Many walk and bike rounds had been replaced by vans as there were now more parcels and less letters.
This is due mainly to the increase in online shopping.
Royal Mail bosses admitted that due to the changes brought in last month, there were delays in the post reaching some households in Peterborough.
Royal Mail apologise for the inconvenience this may have caused.
A spokewoman said “These are only bedding in problems and we hope delivery times will get back to normal as soon as possible”
Usually where Royal Mail have problems, there is an increase in same day courier business due to companies wanting to know that urgent documents and parcels are going to arrive on time.
