The Post Office has been accused of delivering a "huge blow" to its network after announcing plans to seek partnerships with retail firms for 70 of its main high street branches.

The company said the move will help the offices remain in their current locations, pledging no compulsory redundancies. But the Communication Workers Union (CWU) described the decision as the "partial destruction" of the so-called Crown office network.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
