ELDERLY people relying on Meals on Wheels will be tucking into their hot food today (Tuesday) as services resumed after being suspended in many areas of the St Albans district yesterday (Monday).

Ian Woods, a trustee of Age Concern which provides meals to more than 100 elderly people in St Albans each day, confirmed services have resumed.
