WOMBWELL'S busy town centre post office has been earmarked for closure.

The Post Office has started consultation on plans to shut the main office in Wombwell and move it into budget frozen food shop, Heron Foods.

The proposed move would see one screened and two open plan counters.

If the move goes ahead, the branch would be open 8am-6pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-4pm on Sunday.
