A postman has resigned after Royal Mail launched an investigation into post that had been tampered with. The postal service says the items will now be repaired and handed to their intended homeowners.
Customers will be able to file a claim for compensation for anything that has been lost or damaged, reports PlymouthLive. A Facebook post had claimed a postman was seen dropping a crate of ‘opened’ mail, including birthday cards, in the road.,
A Royal Mail spokesperson said: “I can confirm we did begin to investigate, however the employee resigned. The mistreated items have been repaired for onward delivery to addressees which would facilitate claims to be made for missing contents in due course. We apologise for the disruption that this will have caused.”
