Mail held by postman for years

5:53 am on 16 May 2013

A postman on the island of Sardinia has been charged with theft over 400kg of undelivered mail found at his home. Some of the items were mailed in 2009.

The letters, magazines and packages were discovered in his apartment and garage in the village of Mores after residents complained they had not received mail for some time.

Corriere della Sera, a daily newspaper, reported on Wednesday that he had failed to explain why he had hoarded the mail.
