Computer failure hits post services
Customers said they were unable to post parcels and were told that staff could not deal with anything which required a computer.
A Post Office spokesman said: "The Post Office apologises to its customers for the inconvenience caused by a computer problem currently affecting the service at branches across the UK.
"Branches are making special cash payments to Post Office Card Account customers. Post Office ATMs and Post & Go services in branch are unaffected. Bill payments and E-topups for mobile phones can be made at Paystation terminals in Post Office branches."
