Postal workers in Bristol will find out later whether they are to take strike action. Staff at the Royal Mail debot in Mead Street have been balloting about striking which closes today.

It's over a row about mail backlogs. Workers say their delivery rounds are too large, but Royal Mail has put it down to high levels of sick leave. The result is expected to be announced this afternoon.
