Royal Mail apologises after Toto eats the Tin Man’s autograph

An autograph collector lost two celebrity autographs after his dog ripped them up when the postman put them through the letter box rather than asking for a signature.

Bryan Garner, 38, of Sutton-in-Ashfield, was expecting the delivery of a “rare” signed autograph from famous Superman actor Christopher Reeve.

The item was supposed to be delivered via Royal Mail’s Signed For service, which means its should have been signed for, rather than posted through the letter box.

However when it arrived on Tuesday, February 6, he said the postman signed for it, rather than knocking on the door to collect a signature, and put it through the letter box.

This meant his small pet dog called Toto reached the mail before his wife and tore up the autograph, which he estimates was “easily worth a couple of hundred pounds”.
