Post staff's 24-hour strike ends

Postal staff in Cambridgeshire have ended their strike over a dispute with Royal Mail over national agreements.

Communication Workers Union (CWU) members at delivery offices in Ely, Cambridge, Haddenham, Iselham and Soham walked out on Monday for 24 hours.

It came ahead of a national ballot for strike action among members of the CWU, which begins on Wednesday with results due on 8 October.

Royal Mail said the decision to have the ballot was "wholly irresponsible".
