Postman arrested in mail inquiry
Up to 100 extra staff are to be employed by Royal Mail to improve the postal service in Norwich.

The city has the worst performance in East Anglia with only 87% of first class mail arriving the next day. The national target is 92%.

New machinery has also been installed at the main sorting office.

Royal Mail blames its failings on a mixture of staff shortages, single delivery "teething problems" and changes to transport.
