Brighton vandals have left the Royal Mail scratching their head after painting postboxes white.

The Melville Road postbox

Several boxes through the city have been damaged in this way, and there is no indication why it’s happening.

Blogger Dan Wilson spotted two of the boxes, one outside the post office in Melville Road, Hove, and the other at the Dyke Road end of Buckingham Road in Brighton, and took these pictures of them.

He said: “I thought at first it might be incompetant priming for a new coat. But according to the nice lady in the Post Office it’s not, it’s happened to ‘several’ and seems to be some sort of mischief.

“Anyone know anything? It’s quite specialist and artless vandalism.”

Do you know who’s behind the paint jobs – and why they’re doing it? Leave a comment below.
