Royal Mail postbox stolen from north Norfolk village

11:50 15 March 2013

A Royal Mail postbox has been stolen from a north Norfolk village.

Police are appealing for information about the theft, which happened in Cley, between 11.10am on Saturday March 2 and 12.15pm on Sunday March 3.

The postbox, plus the post to which it was attached, were taken from Holt Road, near the entrance to Church Lane.

Officers want to speak to anyone who may have noticed anything suspicious in this area at the beginning of the month.

Royal Mail spokesman Sally Hopkins said: “The box was cleared as normal on Saturday morning so any customers who posted any items after that should contact our customer services team on 08457 740 740.

“We have ordered a replacement box and in the meantime there are two other boxes in Cley that customers can use.

“We have 115,000 postboxes nationwide and thankfully thefts like these are relatively rare.”​

  • Didn't I read the other day that the residents of the Queens Hill estate in Costessey were clamouring for a posting box? Be worth a check . . .

  • As privatisation approaches these things will become collectors' items, so expect a growing trend of "disappearances" with local entrepreneurs keen to stock up while they still can.
