Royal Mail eager to extend 'neighbour drop-offs'

Royal Mail is planning to introduce a nationwide scheme so that if no one is at home to receive parcels, they can be left with a neighbour.
It will start from the end of September if regulator Ofcom gives the go-ahead.
People would need to opt-out if they did not want it to happen.
