Overseas post still disrupted after Royal Mail 'cyber incident'

ANYONE sending items abroad with Royal Mail have been warned there is no end in sight to delivery disruption after the firm was hit by a ‘cyber incident’

The firm is still unable to send letters and parcels overseas and says it is “working hard” to fix the issue.

There are also minor delays to post coming into the UK, but domestic deliveries are unaffected.

Royal Mail apologised again and vowed to update people as soon as possible.

It said that some customers who had posted items abroad even before the ‘incident’ might see delays.

A National Crime Agency spokesperson said it was “aware of an incident impacting Royal Mail” and was working alongside the National Cyber Security Centre – which is part of the UK’s cyber intelligence agency GCHQ – to understand its impact.
