Post haste re­ply

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

AN ‘ad­min­is­tra­tive er­ror’ will see lo­cal mail de­liv­er­ies re­in­stated to Mull and Tiree af­ter a re­port in the Oban Times.

How­ever, mail from Oban and Lorn will con­tinue to make a 200-mile round trip to Glas­gow and back.

Last week it was re­ported that mail from the is­lands and Oban makes a jour­ney of more than 100 miles in or­der for it to be sorted in Glas­gow be­fore be­ing sent back to Ar­gyll and the isles.

A Royal Mail spokes­woman said this week: ‘Af­ter in­ves­ti­gat­ing this is­sue, we have iden­ti­fied an ad­min­is­tra­tive er­ror which tem­po­rar­ily led to a change in how mail was sorted and de­liv­ered lo­cally on Mull and Tiree. This has now been rec­ti­fied, so from Septem­ber 10, mail posted on Mull and Tiree for ad­dresses on those is­lands will be de­liv­ered lo­cally.‘
