Strikes planned for the Black Friday weekend and the run-up to Christmas will go ahead after talks between Royal Mail and the Communication Workers Union ended without an agreement.

Deliveries will be disrupted by ten more strike days at the busiest time of the year for the postal service.

Royal Mail said it had made its “best and final offer” and accused the union of “holding Christmas to ransom”.

The CWU will hold a 48-hour strike on Thursday and Friday.
