Pulled this off Royal Mails website for anyone wondering about postal delays of any watches in or outbound from the UK Guys.I like im sure others who are waiting for overseas packages will be wondering whats going to happen with all the Volcanic ash that have grounded all the planes here in the UK.Hope this is relevant as i just wanted to give a heads up.Neilo. :'(
Suppose that Royal Mail do have the excuse of "ACT OF GOD" this time for a change. ::)



General synopsis The closure of UK airspace and airspace in parts of Europe since Thursday morning is continuing to affect our distribution of mail by air. This has impacted on some UK domestic mail, which travels by air and mail due to either leave or enter the country via UK airports.
We have robust contingency plans in place to keep as much mail moving as possible, using alternative road and rail networks to replace air services. However, despite these contingency arrangements, there may be a small delay to mail being delivered in some areas, for as long as this situation lasts.
We're really sorry for any inconvenience this causes. Please be assured we're doing all we can to keep disruption to an absolute minimum. We will get all services back to normal as soon as the situation allows.
Deliveries and collections Normal deliveries and collections are being made in all parts of the UK today, Monday 19 April.
In Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as parts of South West and North East England, there may be some delay to mail at this time, as transporting mail to and from some of the more distant parts of the UK will take longer than normal without air transport. There may also be a small delay to mail in other parts of the country as a result.
Special Delivery™ services - temporary suspension of next day guarantee The closure of UK airspace has impacted on our ability to transport mail around some parts of the UK. We are continuing to accept and prioritise Special Delivery™ items and we are confident that if customers use this service, the vast majority of Special Delivery™ items will arrive on time. However, we use the air network to transport a proportion of our mail around the UK and because it is not available to us at the moment, we cannot guarantee every Special Delivery™ item will be delivered on time, in all areas.
In order to provide customers with clear guidance, we removed the Special Delivery™ guarantee for items posted on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 April.
We will continue to make every effort to deliver these items and will restore the guarantee of next day delivery as soon as we can be sure we can honour the Special Delivery™ service promise in all areas.
Regular updates about Special Delivery™, national and international mail services will continue to be made available on these web pages.
International mail International mail due to leave or enter the UK has also been affected by the closure of airspace and so a delay to mail leaving or entering the country is likely at this time. Mail leaving the UK for Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and other European countries, is being transferred to road services where possible. USA mail is currently being routed via road and a southern European airport. Mail for other parts of the world is being held in order for it to continue its journey as soon as flights resume.
We will continue to update these web pages about the status of mail services throughout this period; you can also keep up to date with services on twitter www.twitter.com/RoyalMail.
