Cardiff has received a specially decorated blue postbox as a way of thanking NHS workers for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.

Five postboxes across the UK have been painted blue by the Royal Mail with the message: "Thank You NHS."

Cardiff's blue postbox is located close to the University Hospital of Wales.

The other four boxes can be found at St Thomas' Hospital in London, Trafford General Hospital in Manchester, Royal Edinburgh Hospital and The Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast.
