TWO post office facilities remain shut following their sudden closure earlier this week.

The Kinson Post Office has been shuttered since Monday morning and the post office in West Hill Road in Bournemouth town centre has also been closed.

It is believed that the store at the West Hill branch is still open, and it is just the post office section which was closed off.

The Post Office has confirmed that both branches have the same postmaster.

A spokesperson said: “Kinson and West Hill post offices have been temporary closed due to operational reasons.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure of this branch. We are working hard to restore post office services to the area as soon as possible.

"The nearest alternative branches for Kinson are Bearwood and Cunningham Crescent. The nearest alternative branches are Westbourne, Landsdowne and Bournemouth.”
