Mail deliveries have been brought back after cancellation on a street where a dog bit the postman.

From Wednesday letters and parcel deliveries returned to Whaddon Chase Aylesbury.

The saga, which saw residents having to attend the sorting office in Cambridge Street to collect their mail started in September.

One of the postmen delivering to the street was attacked by a dog on 16 September 2015 for the third time, and suffered cuts and scratches. Other incidents have required hospital treatment.

120 homes were affected by the cancellation.

Royal Mail spokesperson Sally Hopkins said: “From Wednesday 7 October, Royal Mail has resumed deliveries to all properties in Whaddon Chase, Aylesbury, following a further meeting between the police and the dog owner. “The police have been given a reassurance by the dog owner that their dog will be kept inside until after the postman has completed his deliveries in this road.

“We are writing to those residents to confirm deliveries have been reinstated”.
