A Somerset postbox has been painted gold in honour of a horse rider's success at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Deb Criddle, 46, from Trull, near Taunton, claimed a team gold and two silvers in the freestyle dressage and individual event at London 2012.

First class stamps with her picture are also being produced and will be on sale across the UK.

Criddle said she was at the "top of her career".

"It tops all the other games. I don't think anyone could have envisaged it," she said.

"The people involved, the supporters we've had - they've really made it something very special."
