New service claims to make it easier to post parcels

Making sure you are at home for a parcel delivery is a problem many of us face from time to time. But a new service has launched that allows customers to use their local shop or pub to both send and receive packages.

Collect Plus is the first consumer to consumer delivery network to launch in the UK. It claims to be cheaper than Royal Mail and have about 3,500 nationwide outlets that will process deliveries.

Shop owner David Hearn and postal expert David Stubbs explain the benefits to BBC Breakfast.
