Postal workers from Leiston have put a Suffolk twist on a well-known Christmas tune, as they look to spread some festive cheer.

Staff at Leiston Royal Mail delivery office have shared a hilarious video on Facebook of their rendition of Fairytale of New York, with members dressed in festive outfits to "give a Christmas gift" to their loyal customers.

The video shows nine staff members - and one dog - all coming together to sing the witty Christmas tune.

Speaking of the video, Beth Dunthorne, one of the postal workers involved, said: "We are completely taken aback by the response online.

"It was only meant to be a little light-hearted effort after a friend challenged us to do our own video following Framingham RM's video last week. But it's really got the whole office smiling."
