Letter’s long haul

"Rob Whitmore, 11, received a £20 gift from his grandmother after her letter had made a 22,000-mile detour via Norfolk Island in the South Pacific. Postal staff appear to have misread the ornate writing of Mariana Whitmore, 90, who sent the envelope to Botesdale from Stowmarket, Suffolk, 13 miles away."

Well, Susan will be glad to know that the UK postal service has parallels with Canada’s.
