Royal Mail has apologised for failing to deliver to addresses in a Cumbrian town because of "swooping attacks by seagulls".
Four properties in the town didn't receive their mail on Tuesday 5 July due to the attacks.
These kinds of attacks do occur at this time of year as the gulls are nesting and rearing their chicks. Normal deliveries resumed on Wednesday.
The safety of our people is paramount to Royal Mail and these swooping attacks made it difficult for the postwoman to continue to do her job.
Any customer who has a concern about their mail delivery can contact Royal Mail Customer Services on 03457 740740.
