Royal Mail Delivers a Price Rise Blunder

Royal Mail has apologised after announcing a price rise which breaches a cap designed to make the postal service “affordable” for all consumers.

From 25 March, the price of a second-class stamp will rise by 3p to 61p - breaching Ofcom’s current price cap of 60p which is in place until 1 April.

The price of a first-class stamp will also increase by 3p to 70p.

Royal Mail says it will donate the extra revenue, expected to be £60,000, to charity Action for Children.
