Royal Mail will trial a new early morning delivery service to minimise the impact of closing its Hornsey sorting office.

The service, usually only in place at Christmas time, will see parcels delivered between 7am and 9am, when people are most likely to be home.

More than 1,000 residents protested against plans by Royal Mail to close the Hornsey sorting office and move services to the Bush Industrial Estate in Tufnell Park.

Hornsey and Wood Green MP Lynne Featherstone says the promised new service is not enough.

She said: “Customers need the level of service and flexibility they have now and this scheme does not provide that.

“I think there needs to be more specific redelivery times, which can be specified by the customers – to avoid disruption and spending any hours waiting in for a parcel at the weekend.

“I will be watching their pilot scheme closely but at the same time I shall continue to campaign on the behalf of local people for proper replacement service.”
