Post Office has responded to concerns raised over the closure of its branch in Ore.

The Old London Road branch has been closed since August 15, but Post Office said it is working hard to restore the service in the area as soon as possible.

A Post Office spokesman said: “Ore has been temporarily closed since August 15 due to the premises, that we do not own, being unexpectedly withdrawn for Post Office use at short notice.

“We apologise for any inconvenience the temporary closure at short notice has caused.
