Hundred-year-old Royal Mail wheelbarrow restored in March

A man has restored a 100-year-old Royal Mail wheelbarrow found in a barn.

Colin Bedford, from March, revived the cart after it was found in a barn in Heacham, Norfolk.

The very rare Victorian barrow was used in the 1900s by postmen in the Fens.

It was donated to the March Veteran and Vintage Cycle Club with a gas lamp on the front, and equipped with a truncheon to fight off mail thieves.
