Romford has been named the UK's 'capital of love', following research on the number of cards posted in the run-up to Valentine's Day.
The Royal Mail says the town's sorting office got the biggest boost in mail volumes ahead of the occasion last year, thanks to the loved-up couples of Essex and East London.
They sent 24.44% more mail on February 13th than on the same day a week earlier, far more than the average nationwide. Elsewhere, the uplift was a decidedly un-romantic 3.43%.
The Romford mail centre processes post from the Romford, Ilford and East London post codes.
