A plaque of Dylan Thomas has been unveiled on a postbox as part of the celebration marking 50 years of Royal Mail special stamps.

The Welsh poet's granddaughter Hannah Ellis revealed the plaque showing his stamp on a postbox in King's Road, Swansea, near the Dylan Thomas Centre.

The stamp was issued in 2014 as part of the Remarkable Lives issue.

A plaque of the Tenby lifeboat stamp, issued in 2008, was also unveiled at a postbox in Tudor Square in the town.
