Junk mail controversy

There is widespread interest in a postman who was suspended for telling householders how to avoid junk mail.

The Telegraph said Roger Annies told people how to opt out of the Royal Mail scheme where flyers advertising local services are delivered with post.

The Daily Express reports that his local sorting office received more than 70 requests to end the junk mail.
