A Bury St Edmunds-based courier company made sure a 10ft-tall caterpillar arrived ahead of time a celebratory tea party.

There was a danger Cuthbert the caterpillar would be delayed for the event on September 19 at Homerton College, Cambridge University, which is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Thanks to Concierge Couriers Ltd, Cuthbert made the journey to Cambridge from Chatsworth House in Derbyshire with time to spare.
