PRESSURE is mounting on Royal Mail to replace a north Pembrokeshire postbox after it was thought to have been blown up.

Someone placed an explosive device in the box near the B4313 in Rosebush and detonated it, in June.

A witness said he heard a loud bang at around 10.30pm at night and found cast iron scattered all over the road.

Since then the post box has not been replaced and residents are complaining it is an eyesore. One resident, who did not want to be named, said: “It’s the type of thing that happens in Iraq, not Rosebush.”

Dinas Cross County Councillor Bob Kilmister has written to Royal Mail and been informed that a delivery manager will be visiting the site. A Dyfed Powys Police spokesman said: “This disregard for public safety, Royal mail and its workers is causing serious concern.”
