Lost letters discovered at Birmingham New Street

Listen to this article

Undelivered letters dating back almost 25 years have been discovered in a post box at Birmingham New Street station.

The post box, which has long sat on the station’s main concourse, was sealed up a year ago after complaints that people were getting their fingers caught in the slot while dropping off letters.

Staff at New Street station discovered the undelivered mail after getting permission to remove the iconic Royal Mail-red letter box.

“There were nine pieces of mail, largely post cards, which were at the bottom. Some of them dating back almost 25 years,” said a Network Rail spokesman.

Royal Mail has now pledged to deliver the lost letters – some of which were destined for Australia and America – to their rightful recipients.
