Protest against possible closure of St Leonards post office

Demonstrators have gathered in St Leonards to protest against the possible closure of the Crown Post Office.

The Post Office revealed plans in July to replace or relocate directly-run Crown branches in 20 locations as part of a modernisation programme.

But locals have described their post office as the 'beating heart' of the community.

Southern passengers are to hold a new protest about the current state of services. It will be held at Victoria on Monday evening as the company introduce 341 cuts to services.

Passengers say it is simply not good enough to cut trains which will lead to more crowding.

The company say it will better inform passengers about what services are more likely to run.

The dispute centres on the role of the guard.
