Bridlington residents may have noticed some disruption to the usual Royal Mail deliveries over the past two weeks.
This is because the service has been severely hit by sickness absences due to a Covid outbreak.
The outbreak meant that more than 30 out of around 50 postmen and women were off work at the same time.
A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “In the Bridlington area, we are experiencing disruption to service due to significant Covid related and other sickness absences.

“Due to the exceptionally high numbers of staff absent, we have been rotating deliveries in the area so that our customers receive their mail as frequently as possible.
“We apologise to customers for any inconvenience they have experienced. We expect our levels of service will begin returning to normal from the start of next week.”
