Royal Mail, usually so reluctant to cram large packages through small letterboxes, are becoming much more ambitious.

A driver operating one of their 7.5-tonne red lorries attempted (accidentally, of course) to deliver his whole vehicle through the front door of an elderly couple’s Hampshire home, leading to an early-morning rescue operation.

The couple were evacuated to safety by fire-fighters through the first floor window after they became trapped inside.

The house has a ‘sold’ sign outside, but it is not yet known if the current occupants are the new owners or the ones suddenly very pleased to be moving on.

The Royal Mail van careered off the A32 Brockhurst Road in Gosport at 5.47am this morning. The driver is said to be ‘shaken but unhurt’, according to ITV News.

The route is still closed between Eastbourne Avenue and Elson Road.
