The following day, Monday, May 30, a man found out the crown was not on the post box anymore.

Alan Collier said a woman had “spent so much time” working on the decoration to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

He said: “She spent so much time making that crown, it’s a bit upsetting.”

Mr Collier said a new one has been put on the pillar box today, Wednesday, June 1.

He added that it was made by the same woman, today (Wednesday, June 1) to replace the previous one on the corner of Hendford and Manor Road.

Mr Collier said: “Hopefully it won’t be easy to take off. This time has been fastened a bit better.”
