A GRANDMOTHER is angry with the Post Office for not having her Star Wars stamps ready for collection.

Bridget Bullock ordered the stamps for her 22-month-old grandson at the post office, in Victoria Square, Droitwich, last month.

But the mother-of-three found that her presentation pack was not available when she visited the post office today.

The special edition stamps were released today - ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi coming out in cinemas.

The Post Office said the stamps arrived at the branch later on in the day and put the incident down to a mix-up.

Ms Bullock, aged 53, of Teme Crescent, Droitwich, said: "The stamps were out today.

"They are Star Wars stamps. I wanted the presentation pack for my grandchild.

"I went down to pick it up today and they said the manager will phone you. I think it's absolutely ridiculous."

She added that although her only grandchild, Alex, is not yet a Star Wars fan she thinks he will grow into one.

Ms Bullock has been stamp collecting for years and first got into it through an American friend.

A Post Office spokesman said: "We’re really sorry for any inconvenience caused.

"Our branch will always call customers to let them know that their stamp orders have arrived and on this occasion, our customer unfortunately turned up ahead of the stamp’s arrival in branch – they arrived a little later in the day.

"Sorry we are that our customer wasn’t able to collect her order immediately, but her stamps are now awaiting her return (of the Jedi)."

The £6.50 presentation pack comes with a cellophane wrapper and a write-up.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will open at cinemas on Thursday, December 14.
