Courier companies explain what they are doing to ensure parcels arrive on time. Facebook removes a consumer 'gripe site', plus the Audi drivers complaining about oil consumption.

The online shopping delivery woes. We find out what the companies are doing to make sure parcels arrive in time for Christmas.
