Protesters gathered outside Crawley’s The Boulevard post office on Saturday, objecting to plans to relocate the branch.

Dave Ward, general secretary of the CWU, which organised a string of protests around the country, said he was grateful to everyone that attended, and promised to bring ‘maximum pressure to bear on the Government and on the senior Post Office management’.
