A man has been arrested after painting a Hampshire Royal Mail postbox gold in honour of Olympic sailor Ben Ainslie.

Rob Smith, 51, said he painted the postbox in Lymington, where the gold medallist lives, in the early hours.

He said he was upset Royal Mail had announced it would only paint a postbox gold in Cornwall, where Ainslie grew up.
