Red-faced tourist chiefs at VisitBritain have just told the world that the Mailbox is in... Manchester.
The country’s official tourist board ran a photo of the iconic Birmingham building on its Twitter account.
Which, of course, was good news.
The bad news is that they directed shoppers to the centre’s flagship Harvey Nichols with the hashtag #Manchester.
The tweet was eventually deleted after Brummies bombarded the site with scorn. James West's reaction was typical - he wrote: “Also worth checking out Hadrian’s Wall in Coventry and Cheddar Gorge in Walsall.”
Others posted sarcastic pictures of Spaghetti Junction labelled as “Manchester’s iconic Tagliatelle Turnpike”.
Some simply told the board they needed to actually visit Britain to “understand the difference” between the two cities.
The mix-up was bizarre, given the fact that the Mailbox is correctly identified as being in Brum on VisitBritain’s own site.
