Postal workers in Whitstable will go on strike today over plans to close their delivery office and move it to Canterbury.

They claim homeowners will have a longer trip into the city to pick up any undelivered mail.

Closing the Whitstable office is part or Royal Mail's £70 million plans to modernise services in Kent.

They say during a 6 month consultation period no objection was made to re-locating the Whitstable office and they don't expect it to have an impact on deliveries.
