MSI Worldwide Mail - September 16th 2014

United Kingdom-Air
On Friday morning the flight from Aberdeen to Sumburgh (Shetland Isles) was late arriving due to fog at Sumburgh Airport. As a result mail due for delivery on Friday was delayed. Fog also played a part again on Saturday morning, however this time the flight was cancelled and all mail was transferred via the road/ferry network. As a result of this mail due for delivery on Saturday will arrive later than planned.

United Kingdom-Road
On Friday night vehicles transporting mail from the Manchester and Preston Royal Mail Centres to the Royal Mail National Distribution Centre arrived late, and mail was unable to travel on connecting services. As a result of this a small amount of mail posted in the BL, M, OL, SK, BB, FY, LA and PR postcode areas on Friday for delivery in parts of the South East, London, the Midlands and South West is likely to arrive later than planned.
