A family from Northamptonshire have installed a letterbox on their garden fence after the Royal Mail suspended deliveries to the house- because of their pet dog.

Sarah Martin from Daventry had put a guard rail at the front door to stop her four-year-old chihuahua going outside but Tiny managed to escape when her three children let her out over Easter.

30 year old Sarah says she's bemused by the ban- thankfully the new letterbox means normal service has been refused.

"I think she's loving the attention, with lots of people coming round!"
