The pillar box is being removed after repeated vandalism attacks
A postbox in Bristol has been turned into a shrine by people upset about a decision to remove it.
The pillar box in Bedminster, which is being taken away because of attacks by vandals, has been covered in flowers and "rest in peace" cards.
A passage from WH Auden's poem, Night Mail, has been also been attached to the postbox, along with a crucifix.
Whoever is behind the shrine has remained anonymous but residents said a memorial ceremony took place on Sunday.
The passage from the Auden poem reads: "And no-one will hear the postman's knock/Without a quickening of the heart.
"For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?"
A spokeswoman for Royal Mail said there were other pillar boxes near the one about to be removed, which is on the corner of Fraser Street and Windmill Hill.
