Letter delivery company Royal Mail has taken three months to deliver a letter to an address in Bromley, Kent, it has been reported.
According to local news source News Shopper, a letter was posted to the Rotarian High Chambers back in 2007 – but only arrived at its destination this month.
The letter was posted from an address just two miles away from the Rotary Club’s premises and contained a nomination form for the Christmas tree of light event which it holds every year.
Speaking to the source, a spokesperson from Royal Mail said it is “difficult to speculate” what might have happened but that it is “extremely unlikely” that the letter was stuck in its system for three years, as regular checks are carried out.
Meanwhile, Royal Mail recently announced a rise in stamp prices which will come into use next April. After the changes, the cost of posting a first class letter will rise by five pence and the cost of a second class letter will increase by four pence.
