Leeds postie has special delivery for the Queen

Britain's longest serving postman made a very special delivery today, as the Queen toured a Royal Mail centre on the eve of her 90th birthday.

Bob Hartley from Leeds hails from a long line of his posties, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather.

He's worked at the Royal mail for more than half a century, but today was the first time he had been required to hand a parcel to the Queen.
