'Too dangerous': the house a postman refuses to deliver to in the mornings

A pensioner from Hungerford has criticised Royal Mail after a postman stopped delivering his letters in the morning, saying it is too dangerous to cross the road.

The mail now arrives at the house in Great Shefford in the afternoon - when the postman is on his way back from his round and can park directly outside the property. Royal Mail insist they are within their requirements to deliver the mail by 3:30pm.

The former Ford Transit plant site in Southampton could be sold off next month - and there are hopes that other companies will provide jobs there. At its peak, the Swaything factory employed 4,000 people. The plant closed in 2013 when most of the operations were moved to Turkey. It brought to an end nearly 100 years of production in Southampton. Buildings will be demolished by the end of the year, and councillors are keen to attract industry back to the area.

Congratulations to Ian Walker - who's become the first British skipper to win the Round the World Volvo Ocean Race.

The sailor from Southampton masterminded the victory onboard Abu Dhabi Ocean racing - with one leg still to go. The team, which includes Justin Slattery from Hamble, can now enjoy the final stretch - from Lorient in France - to Gothenburg in Sweden, which sets off on Tuesday.

ADOR began Leg 8 with a six-point lead over their closest rivals and with a chance of sealing victory if they could beat both Team Brunel and Dongfeng Race Team by more than one place. Although the shortest in the race so far at 647 miles, Leg 8 proved to be a brutal challenge for the ADOR sailors who had next to no time for sleep for the entire three and a half days it took to complete.

Skipper Ian was quick to praise the entire ADOR team, both afloat and ashore. "I can't thank everyone enough. We put this team together with a plan to hire the best people we could and to let them do their job. Nothing has derailed that plan and that's why we're where we are today."
