A post office in Cornwall is offering support to elderly people who are worried about coronavirus.

Bude post office is offering a home service, collection and delivery for vulnerable customers.

It is to help others in what it calls "a period of uncertainty".

"In this period of uncertainty with this virus if any of our older customers are worried about coming out to the post office or need anything at all please don’t hesitate to ring us or contact us in the post office.

"We will come to you and provide a home service/collection/delivery or do what ever we can.

"Letters parcels, home shopping returns, bill payments, electric/ gas top ups.

"These are unprecedented times we must think, listen and respond accordingly.

"And behave sensibly in traditional British fashion."
