Exploding eBay parcel injures postmistress

No primary category set

A parcel containing a car airbag exploded at a Devon post office yesterday. The sub-postmistress at Clyst St Mary was taken to hospital with minor cuts and shock, but is believed not to be seriously injured.

Explosive Ordnance Disposal officers dealt with the package, which Mike Howe, a director of the joint village shop and post office, later said was an eBay purchase which exploded while it was being moved. Police confirmed that the incident was not suspicious.

(And yes, I’m aware the eBay connection on this story is pretty tenuous!)
