Thousands of Post Office workers are to stage a one-day strike later this month over jobs, pensions and branch closures.
The Communications Workers Union will walk out on the 31st October and further strikes on the run up to Christmas have not been ruled out.
However, in this modern age of communications, are businesses and even the wider public as reliant on the postal service?
We asked members of the public the question, does this strike really affect us?
