A MILK producer has apologised to their customers for not receiving deliveries today, blaming problems at a processing plant.

Dairy Crest which delivers milk to thousands of customer's doorsteps in Suffolk said processing problems had disrupted the service this morning.

A Dairy Crest spokesperson said: “We would like to apologise to our customers in some of the Suffolk area who did not receive their usual milk delivery today as a result of production difficulties earlier in the week.

“Deliveries will resume as normal tomorrow and any customers with any queries should call our customer service team on 0800 615 715.”

The news comes just three weeks after around 300 delivery staff in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex transferred over to Dairy Crest following the full closure of the East of England Co-operative Society's Boss Hall plant in Ipswich.
