The US postal service has been forced to admit it's made a big mistake with a new postage stamp of one of America's most iconic landmarks.

The stamp was thought to show the Statue of Liberty in New York.

But unfortunately, it was an image of a fibreglass and styrofoam replica - in Las Vegas.

Three billion copies of the stamp have been printed.

The BBC's Aisling McVeigh reports.
