Post offices bosses have apologised for the mysterious closure of Wolverton post office.

They say the Stratford Road facility is closed due to "unforeseen circumstances" but will not elaborate further.

Last month the post office was closed for almost three weeks last month for no apparent reason. Then, days after re-opening, its doors were locked again.

"There is no notice saying why or when they will re-open," said one user.

"There's no notice on the door and the phones are not being answered. Nobody has a clue what is happening and it's really inconvenient," said another.

Rumours are circulating all over town about the reason, but nothing has been confirmed.

The Citizen today put questions in to national Post Office bosses asking for the reasons for the closures.
