Snail mail

Published: Monday, 19 April 2010

FOUR empty Royal Mail bags have been discovered dumped by the side of the Selby Canal.

These were found along the pound at Brayton earlier this month, with one in a tree, one on the towpath and the remaining two were in the canal itself.

Police have ruled out any connection with either an earlier armed robbery at Hensall or the murder at Melsonby post office, but the police are asking anyone who saw the empty bags being dumped to contact them.
