Royal Mail says people should send Christmas post early

Royal Mail has asked customers to post Christmas mail earlier than usual due to continuing strike action by postal workers. Royal Mail said it was trying to keep mail moving in the busy festive period. Nick Landon, Royal Mail's chief commercial officer, said the CWU was "Striking at our busiest time, holding Christmas to ransom for our customers, businesses and families across the country". He apologised for any disruption, and said Royal Mail was asking customers to post early "To help us deliver Christmas". Laura Joseph, Post Office customer experience director, warned that "December 12 is now likely to be even busier in Post Office branches as customers race to take advantage of the cheaper postage" and she urged people to post parcels as soon as possible.
