Sedgley Post Office is usually a hive of activity at the start of each new week. However, people visiting this morning (Monday, June 13th) were shocked to find their local branch shut due to an overnight robbery on Sunday, June 12th.
Standing outside the popular Dudley Street branch, the owners explained what had happened to passers-by, and assured them the popular Post Office would open again as soon as possible.
