A new Post Office has opened in Felixstowe Road, putting to an end years of the road being without postal services.

A new post office has opened in Ipswich's Felixstowe Road, putting to an end several years of the road being without postal services.

Instead of opening a new branch in its entirety, the services are now available inside the existing Cockrams Convenience Store.

Open for 72 hours a week - from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday - staff have boasted the new space offers a "modern open-plan retail environment".

The previous branch shut in 2010.

Kevin Cox, post office network operation manager, said: "We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident this brand new post office alongside Cliff Lane, Queen Way and Cauldwell Hall Road will ensure that people in this area of Ipswich have easy access to our services."
