A post office in Cornwall has celebrated 175 years of continuous trading.

Villagers in Stoke Climsland gathered to see a special birthday message delivered in style when a messenger on horseback from the Post Office rode into town to deliver greetings to staff from the branch on Sunday.

The community also marked the day with special events, including a church service and the issuing of a special commemorative envelope designed by local schoolchildren.
