When it comes to mindless acts of vandalism this is probably a first class example.
A letter box in Diss has been the victim of an attack of criminal damage that has left it lying prostrate on the ground rather than upright ready to accept post.
As a crime it might not be up there with the great train robbery, when the gang got away with £2.6 million from a Royal Mail train, but it has left locals angry.
Diss resident Tony Fletcher said: “It’s totally mindless. Why would anyone want to do that? They’ve just got no respect for people.”
The Royal Mail brick pillar box at the junction of Blomefield Road with Frenze Road, close to Diss town centre, appears to have been pushed over.
A Norfolk police spokesman said they were investigating an incident of criminal damage that took place sometime between 9am on Sunday and 9am on Monday.
Witnesses or anyone with information is asked to contact Norfolk Police on 101. Alternatively, they may call Crimestoppers on 0800.
