Cambridge City Councillor Tim Bick has welcomed the news that the city's Trinity Street Post Office has been given a stay of execution.

But he expressed his fears for the future of the post office and called for "a more open dialogue" between Trinity College and the city council on the issue.

Cllr Bick, who represents Market Ward, said: "I am very pleased to hear that the Post Office service is not after all going to be suddenly lost at the end of the year and appreciate the efforts made by the Post Office and Trinity College to avoid this.

"But I'm disappointed if this means the eventual end of a Post Office at 23/24 Trinity Street, which is an important element of a very traditional street scene there. I also note that there is no certainty about which other addresses are being considered, nor about a new long term tenant being found. I would now hope for a more open dialogue with elected representatives about this."
