A second post box has been painted gold in Warwickshire for Olympic Champion Nick Skelton.

This post box in Bedworth has finally got the gold treatment after a campaign by local people.

Nick Skelton won gold in the team show jumping two weeks ago and the Royal Mail painted a box in Alcester where he lives and trains.

But he was born some thirty miles away in Bedworth and locals there said they **should have the honour.
