Just received this E mail from Royal Mail/Parcelforce...
This is a bulk email I am sending to account customers in the Midlands to inform you that there was a major Police incident last night near to our National Hub which resulted in the closure of the access road in to and out of our site. This impacted on our trunking network and we still have many parcels on hand that should be out for delivery.
Please accept my apologies if any of your traffic has been affected. I'm afraid at this point I do not have specific numbers at the moment. I thought you would prefer to be forewarned that some items have not arrived at the relevant Depots in time for delivery today.
