If I only had a…signature

Royal Mail has apologised after a dog ate a special delivery – twice.

Two celebrity autographs were destroyed when the dog ripped them up after a postman put them through the letterbox rather than asking for a signature. The autographs were of the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz and Superman’s Christopher Reeve.

Bryan Garner, of Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, was expecting them to be delivered via Royal Mail’s ‘signed for service’, but instead they came through the letter box. Toto got to the Superman autograph first, which was estimated to be worth about £200. Royal Mail offered £150 in compensation, reported the Nottingham Post.
