TNT sacks delivery worker who had 5,000 letters at home

TNT has sacked a postal delivery worker who had some 5,000 items of post stacked up in her home, including Christmas cards.

The post company discovered the post was not being delivered following complaints from locals in a district of Helmond.
Last week, Britain’s Guardian newspaper carried a feature on the Dutch postal system including an interview with a Selektmail worker who had dozens of crates of undelivered post stacked up in her home.
