A post box has reappeared on a Staveley road – almost a year after it went missing.

After the box vanished, residents on Middlecroft Road contacted Royal Mail but it turned out they hadn’t removed it and came to the conclusion that it had been stolen.

When the post box wasn’t replaced, residents contacted their MP Toby Perkins who took up the issue. Mr Perkins said: “I’m delighted to have helped. It’s important not to underestimate, in this digital age, the importance of being able to post a letter or card from your local post box.”
