Snail Mail
She had been expecting the letter and noticed it was taking longer than usual to reach her.

The Royal Mail have apologised to a mum of two after her post was munched on by snails.

After a postman delivered a letter with holes all over it Sarah Saunders, 37, was left shell-shocked.
She had been expecting the letter and noticed it was taking longer than usual to reach her.

Eventually it did arrive but Royal Mail had sent an apology with the letter stating the “unusual tampering” was down to paper hungry snails.

The critters like to munch on the glue on the envelopes.

Sarah, from Honiton, said: “I had thought it was strange that I hadn’t received it – and then received the envelope in a plastic bag and the letter from Royal Mail attached.

“Why can’t snails eat the tonnes of junk mail that comes through my letterbox?”

The letter was originally posted in Wellington, Somerset.

The apology from Royal Mail said: “I am sorry that the enclosed letter has been damaged and subsequently delayed.

“The item was found during a scheduled collection from a posting box and had been damaged by snails.

“Unfortunately, despite regular cleaning and placing pellets in the boxes, we find that slugs and snails still occasionally manage to creep into the apertures, fall down into the box and start eating the glue/adhesive on the stamps and envelopes.

“I am sorry for any problems caused by this unusual ‘tampering’ – and while I am pleased to be able to return your letter, albeit in damaged condition, I regret the understandable annoyance caused.”
