The Royal Mail has unveiled a special postbox to mark Valentine’s Day - in a village called Lover.

The postbox, mounted on a post next to a hedge, is decked out with designs including Cupid’s bow and arrow.

Royal Mail is also sponsoring the village’s annual Lover Village Valentine Post, which involves marking cards with a stamp to show where it has been sent from.
