Have your say

A scaredy-cat postman refused to deliver mail to a family's home because he feared being attacked by their pet Chihuahua - called TINY.

Sarah Martin, 30, was left without mail for more nine days after her seven-inch high pooch ran out and yapped at the postie.

She had put a guard rail at the front door to stop the four-year-old dog going outside but Tiny managed to escape when her three children let her out over Easter.

Sarah claims the postie left her young kids in tears after shouting at them and even tried to kick Tiny before telling the shocked mum he was suspending deliveries to her home in Daventry.
