The branch, inside Costcutter, in Howardsgate, was in darkness this afternoon (Wednesday).

Signs at the store read: “Due to circumstances beyond our control this Post Office is closed until further notice.

“Nearest other offices: Peartree, Shoplands, Hall Grove.”

A member of staff was heard telling one customer: “Unfortunately, we’ve got no power - we’re powerless.”
