A Post Office in Hackney will be temporarily closed for major building works.

Although it is not yet known when London Fields Post Office on Broadway Market will be able to reopen, it will be shut from June 15 at 3pm.

The Post Office said the works, which have been planned because of the coronavirus pandemic, are external to the shop but mean it cannot open.
