Royal Mail is to create 1,000 jobs in the UK over the next four years as part of a £75m investment programme for its parcels business.
A new parcel processing centre will open in Chorley in autumn 2013.
Two new depots will open in Cornwall and Hampshire while nine existing depots will be expanded or moved to larger sites over the next four years.
