Operations at Sheffield’s Royal Mail hub received a stamp of approval with the opening of a multi-million-pound extension.

Coun Peter Rippon, Lord Mayor of Sheffield, yesterday visited the vast site on Brightside Lane, Newhall, to officially open the extension following a £25 million investment which sees it become the fourth largest mail centre in the UK.

The opening marks the culmination of three years’ work to extend and modernise the plant after a decision was made in 2010 to close mail centres in Doncaster and Hull and transfer their processing to Sheffield.
