SORRY for another letter about the appalling service we have to put up with from Royal Mail or rather lack of any service.

I am waiting on letters that I know were posted two weeks ago and have still not received! 

Another urgent small package was sent to me first class last Monday, December 4, and again six days later I am still awaiting it.

I have not seen a postman in the close where I live for well over a week and in fact, if I do see one anywhere in Andover I am tempted to take a photograph of an endangered species!

On a more serious note is there any way we can maybe sue Royal Mail for withholding our mail, sadly it seems not.
