All in a day’s work for post room staff …

This news flash came through earlier today on London Borough of Westminster’s public alert feed via CommunitySafe.

Please could Postal Room staff be made aware of the following :

earlier on this afternoon a Parcel containing a doll and organic matter was handed into a Government building Post room. The person handing in the item was described as a Male, approx 60-70 years of age, with White hair and wearing a green coat. The item was declared suspicious and Police were called. Subsequently cleared as Non- suspicious but it was believed that the person handing the item in was suffering from harmless delusions. This is for information only, should this man make further attempts to hand a parcel into other Government buildings…There will be NO update to this message.

That is all.
