And now the hole left has been filled in - we're one pillarbox down. Sad! Angle of tumble - perpendicular to road - makes "bad driving" the least likely reason for collapse. Also no debris or evidence of collision with badly driven vehicle.

Bad driving = Poor three point turn... car reversing onto pavement and knocking over post box.

Just keep a look at for a car possibly marked with red paint...unless it's a red car that did it then your screwed!
