Post Office announcement imminent

Despite our local consultation starting a week before that in London (the fate of whose Post Offices was announced last week) the Post Office website this morning still showed no sign of a decision. News reaches me, however, that one, and presumably all, the local Post Offices have already been told their fate - and in the particular case I've been told about, it's closure. Publication of the full report must be imminent.
8.30am addition: I see from this morning's Echo that the announcement will be made at 10am today.
Meanwhile, the queues in the Crown Street Post Office reached to the door yesterday. God knows what they'll be like soon. And don't those "People's Post Office" tv adverts just make you want to throw up?
Interestingly, an old-fashioned glossy leaflet from the Conservatives is being delivered with one of the free newspapers. It features the invisible man, North Yorkshire toff and Sandhurst educated PPC for Darlington, Edward Legard. Yet again, they print the same photo that appeared in the Echo of Edward outside one of the Post Offices. So I thought I'd show you two of mine.
