A letter sent out to residents said: “We have been experiencing issues in your area involving seagulls attacking our delivery officers when they are delivering mail to multiple properties on the street. We have been successful in delivering all the mail received in the office daily but there may be some days where the delivery officer has attempted multiple times to deliver but it may not be safe to do so which may result in slight delays.
“As a last resort we may have to return mail to the office if the delivery officer feels unsafe when trying to deliver to your address.”
A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “Deliveries to residents of Haddon Road in Bridlington are being affected by seagulls swooping to protect their young.
