Price of first class stamps to rise 9p to 85p

The cost of a first class stamp will rise by 9p to 85p on 1 January, Royal Mail has announced.

A second class stamp will also go up in price, rising by 1p to 66p on the same day.

Prices were raised to their current levels in March. Royal Mail said the latest move was “necessary to help ensure the sustainability” of the universal service.

It said 2020 had been a “challenging year” for the business.

The company added that it had “considered any pricing changes very carefully” owing to the coronavirus pandemic.
