First class stamp will cost 60p

From the end of April, the cost of a First Class stamp will rise to 60p, while second class stamps will be 50p each - an increase of 14p for both.

The record annual increase follows the regulator Ofcom's decision to lift some of the price controls on Royal Mail.

Hugh Pym reports.
