Low-level letterboxes should be banned to prevent postal workers straining their backs or being bitten by dogs, a Conserative MP has said.

Proposing new legislation, just before MPs began debating a no-confidence motion in the government over Brexit, Vicky Ford said it was a "key issue".

She called for all new letterboxes to be installed between 70cm and 170cm.

The Communication Workers Union is campaigning for new buildings to meet EU letter box height standards.
