Oh dear, I see that the health and safety brigade have donned their jackboots again.
This time the "safety" issue relates to a grass verge, and the "risk" that postmen might slip on it.
Thus it has come to pass that the Royal Mail has stopped postmen delivering letters to a row of houses in Torfaen because walking on a grass verge has been deemed "too dangerous".
The health and safety ban came about after one postman complained about Severn View, Pontypool, on his round.
Bosses agreed a short stretch of grass between car tracks and residents' front doors was unsafe so the 10 homes need to collect mail from a Post Office.
Royal Mail said it would carry out a further "safety assessment".
Resident Richard Osborne, is quoted by the BBC:
"We still get all of our junk mail through the letterbox but anything important like the deeds to my house, are sitting in the Post Office, it's unbelievable.A daft safety measure by anyone's standards!
They even refuse to put slips through your door for parcels that are too big and need collecting - how will you know that if they don't put the slip through the door?"
