Post Office customers faced long queues yesterday after self-service check-outs went on the blink in the newly-renovated St Aldate’s branch.

A server issue, lasting 50 minutes, was blamed.

A Post Office spokesman said: “The problem was resolved promptly and we are pleased to report that service was resumed as normal. We would like to apologise to customers inconvenienced by this disruption of service, particularly during the busy period around lunchtime.”
