A little boy who asked the postman to deliver a birthday card to his dad ‘in heaven’ received a letter from the Royal Mail assuring him it had been ‘delivered safely’.

Mum Teri Copland, from Bathgate in Scotland, told how her son Jase, seven, had scrawled a note to the postman asking him to make sure his late father received his card.  

Jase later received a letter from the postal service telling him how the postman had navigated ‘stars and other galactic objects’ to get the ‘important item of mail’ to his dad. 

In a now viral post, Teri thanked the Royal Mail for taking the time to send the letter, saying it ‘means the world’ to her son and has ‘restored my faith in humanity’.
