Nearly half UK daily postbag is now Junk mail
Almost half of all postal deliveries are junk mail, it was revealed yesterday.
And Royal Mail admitted the volume of unwanted letters will only grow in its drive to make bigger profits.
The revelation means up to 27million of the 54million items of daily post are junk mail.
The rise is fuelled by the removal a year ago of a cap that stopped postmen delivering more than three unaddressed letters to a house in a week.
Junk mail can be reduced by registering with The Mailing Preference Service.
It is free and allows householders to remove their names and addresses from many marketing lists.
