Bedminster, Bristol Avon
A postbox in Bristol has been turned into a shrine by people upset about a decision to remove it. The pillar box in Bedminster, which is being taken away because of attacks by vandals, has been covered in flowers and "rest in peace" cards.

Whoever is behind the shrine has remained anonymous but residents said a memorial ceremony took place on Sunday.
