Bridie Cain, who lives in nearby Avon Road, volunteers for the V and A Museum and was out looking for homemade signs relating to the coronavirus pandemic when she spotted the artwork.

She said: “I think it’s a very original and clever thing to make, and heart warming to see. I’ve not seen anything else like it.”

The knitwork has been on the postbox for around a fortnight and Bridie said she has submitted her photos of it to the museum.
