AN MP is calling on residents to oppose plans for the closure of seven Post Offices in the borough.

Virendra Sharma, MP for Ealing and Southall, has thrown his weight behind a campaign to save the branches.

He said: "It is a consultation and we are asking local residents to write in with their views. You can get a form in the Post Office, and then sign it and send it in.

"People are angry. It's not the closure it's the fear of closure, because it's not final.

"But even the thought of that is enough for old people who are dependant on the Post Office."

The branches which could close are in Greenford Green, Greenford, Askew Road, East Acton, Boileau Parade, north Ealing, Bollo Bridge Road, south Acton, Churchfied Road, Acton, Haven Green, Ealing, Norwood Green, Southall, and Park Parade off Gunnersbury Lane, in Ealing.
