Weymouth Post Office is back open today and running as normal under a temporary postmaster.

In a statement to Wessex FM, the Post Office say they apologise for any inconvenience caused.

A Post Office spokesperson said: "We would like thank the Abbotsbury Road and Dorchester Road Post Office services for taking on the extra custom.

"While sometimes issues outside of our control can impact on service, we are committed to maintaining our physical presence in Weymouth and are pleased that the branch is open again."

On Saturday customers were greeted with a notice at the St Thomas' Street site, that the locks had been changed.

It's understood there had been a dispute between the landlords and operator Smartpost.

The branch in St Thomas Street reopened yesterday morning under a temporary post master for a few hours.

A legal challenge was then raised between the landlord and the former tenant, which led to a further closure.
