Claims that parts of Nuneaton have not received post for several weeks have been dismissed by Royal Mail bosses.
CoventryLive was made aware of rumours on social media that large parts of Stockingford had not received post – some for weeks.
It was claimed this was as a result of the local delivery office being short-staffed due to coronavirus.
But when contacted, a spokesperson for the firm said that they were not aware of any issues but said it was possible that some areas may be affected due to staff illness.

“Despite our best endeavours, it is possible that some areas of the country may experience a reduction in service levels due to Coronavirus-related absences at their local mail centre or delivery office.
