The mailing was completed and mailed on Thursday 5th January. Once again we have been impacted by Royal Mail strike days. This does not seem to have caused much of the problem for domestic mail as we managed to pick a slot between strike days. However, the overseas mail has had major disruptions caused by the strikes and compounded by a software cyber attack on the Royal Mail by Russian criminals. This resulted in much of the overseas mail being held up. Today, 8th February, the Royal mail have announced that overseas mail and parcel services will restart imminently.
