Royal Mail staff claim their shares were sabotaged

Hundreds of Royal Mail staff have complained that they have been short-changed as a result of a dramatic fall in the company's share price.
They claim the privatised company deliberately issued a profit warning weeks before many were planning to sell their shares.
Since the announcement on 1 October the shares have fallen by 28%.
However Royal Mail said it had no choice but to tell the City as soon as it realised profits would be lower.
Some 145,000 postal staff have waited five years to sell the free shares they were given at the time of privatisation.
