In the latest strike over pay by members of the Communication Workers Union (CWU), workers gathered outside the depot on Willowburn Avenue this morning (Tuesday).

And some decided to wear Halloween-themed costumes – with one carrying a placard stating ‘we won’t give up the ghost’.

Further strikes are planned over the coming weeks.

A Royal Mail statement said: “We’re sorry for the disruption this is likely to cause you. We’re doing what we can to keep services running but customers should expect significant disruption.”
