Coventry Royal Mail sorting centre shuts

A Royal Mail sorting centre in Coventry has been closed despite months of protests against the plans.

Members of staff were upset about the closure of the Bishop Street site and a move to a new £70m site in Northampton.

The remaining delivery work will be fully transferred to a delivery office in south Coventry from Monday.

Royal Mail said the Bishop Street building had been sold to Barberry Developments and it would fully vacate it by the end of the year.
