Colleagues in ‘my area are so wonderful it’s ridiculous,’ thinks one customer named Lucy. Alan, your incredible detective skills are something Agatha Christie herself would be proud of, and to all you customer key rescuers, thank you for your service!

And finally, ‘hats off’ indeed to everyone going the extra mile in areas affected by recent and ongoing flooding as well as ‘torrential rain and gale force winds.’

Below is a small selection of tweets sent in by grateful customers.

  • @LucyBellaEarl – The @RoyalMail posties in my area are so wonderful it’s ridiculous! I’m often at the gym when they try to deliver signed for parcels, and they always come back and check if my car is there at the end of their round so I get them on time. It’s sooo appreciated!
