ROYAL Mail is investigating an incident in which a sack of post was left in the road.

A resident in Coombe-lands, Royston, discovered the sack on Friday morning sitting in the middle of the road

It contained hundreds of letters and small parcels which were due to be delivered in Maple Way and Cherry Drive, Royston

A spokesman for Royal Mail said: "It appears that the sack fell out of an unlocked side door of the delivery van as the driver had to brake sharply to avoid a vehicle.

"This is an isolated incident which shouldn't have happened and there will be an investigation into the incident.

After taking the sack home, the resident gave it to a different postman who returned it to the sorting office in Grantham Close, Royston.
