Postal services are due to return to Attleborough town centre today after technical problems forced a delay.

Alan Fincham, owner of the One Stop convenience store, said a 'combi-counter' offering basic Post Office services would be open there from today, although with limited hours while staff were being trained up. A parcel pick-up service is now also operating at the One Stop.

The High Street Post Office closed on November 24, leaving the town centre without a postal service.

Town council members last night criticised the Post Office's delays after complaints from residents, some of whom have been unable to access their pension as they normally did.

Deputy mayor Vera Dale said: 'It's quite worrying for those who don't have transport and can't get down to Dodds Road [Post Office].

'When you have somebody having to borrow money in Sainsbury's because they can't get their pension, that to me is criminal.'
