Royal Mail said it was closing a postbox in Plymouth, Devon, after one of the company's vans received a parking ticket while picking up the post. The van was parked next to the post box when it was caught by one of the city's camera cars, and the postal service received a fine in the post.

The Royal Mail responded by sealing the postbox up.
