Royal Mail has begun the search for a new chairman after Donald Brydon announced his intention to step down.

Mr Brydon was appointed chairman in 2009 and has overseen a period of major change for the company, including its flotation in October 2013.

The process to appoint his successor has started and Mr Brydon will continue to chair the board until at least the AGM in the summer.
