Item from USA via USPS - delay in UK – any advice please?

I recently ordered a classic film camera from a reliable firm in the USA but it seems to be stuck in transit in the UK.

According to the USPS tracking it was collected from the dealer on Oct 7 and departed a ‘Transit Airport’ in London Heathrow and was “in transit to the destination” at 6.12am on 9 Oct.

So far so good – indeed quite impressive!

However, since then, 3 days ago, the USPS tracker still shows the same message i.e.

“Your item departed a transfer airport in HEATHROW, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM on October 9, 2019 at 6:12 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination.”

So, it’s now 3 days later & nothing has changed and I’m beginning to be concerned as normally in the UK items are delivered overnight. Could it be that it's held up in customs or is it something more sinister?

Dose anyone have any experience of shipping from the USA via USPS and is this sort of delay once it has landed in the UK common?

Many thanks

Phil
