Postal services in Derry are expected to resume today.

Deliveries were disrupted yesterday after staff refused to enter the city's sorting office at Great James Street.

This was a result of the high number of Covid-19 cases that have been identified recently among the workforce at the sorting office.

It is understood that a number of other staff are also self-isolating.

The remaining staff yesterday said they did not wish to enter the sorting office until a deep clean had been carried out of the building and the postal vehicles.

Royal Mail said the clean was carried out yesterday and that services will resume today.
