This Is Why We Have A "FAIL Britannia!" Tag

Thank you, Royal Mail, for this bit of levity.

Royal Mail chiefs wrote to Ken Ridge claiming that six-month-old Illy had attacked a postal worker.

Mail deliveries to the house could now be suspended as a result of the attack on the woman, he was told.

Mr Ridge, 65, who lives in Clapham, South London, with his 30-year-old son Bradley, said: 'We were not around when this happened, but it seems some mail was put through the letterbox and their hand was scratched.

'Illy is only a kitten and I am sure she was just playing.   

'Then we got a letter from the mail delivery office warning our deliveries could be stopped.'   

Signed by office manager Mayo Sonubi the letter said: 'I am writing to let you know that, on June 6, our postman was attacked by your animal in your premises while delivering mail to your address.

'Animal attacks are a major cause of injury to Royal Mail staff and so I am writing to seek your co-operation in preventing a repeat of this unfortunate incident.

'I must advise you that, if any further incidents of this nature are allowed to take place, I shall have no alternative other than to consider suspending the delivery of mail to your home.'
