A meeting is taking place to try to avoid a possible postal strike that could disrupt Christmas mail in part of Bristol.

Previous talks between the Communication Workers Union and Royal Mail over a dispute at the city's Mead Street depot have so far failed to reach an agreement. It is hoped that today's meeting will resolve the row over working conditions.

If the strike goes ahead deliveries in the BS4 and BS14 areas of the city would be affected.
