Ash cloud affecting postal services

6:47 pm on 16 June 2011

New Zealand Post is warning there could be disruptions to the country's postal service because of the Chillean volcanic ash cloud.

The plume has grounded some aircraft that carry mail, forcing the postal service to transport some letters and parcels by road.

Not all services will be affected and updates will be placed on the New Zealand Post website.
