WHY has a postbox in Taunton town centre been painted blue?

The postbox, in North Street, has been changed from its traditional red colour. 

We asked the Royal Mail why the boxes had been painted, but we were quickly met with a 'no comment' from a spokeswoman.

Further detail has been requested from the new Somerset West and Taunton Council.

Perhaps it's time for a change in the Royal Mail's branding? Or more likely a result of the Cricket World Cup coming to town next month...

What are your thoughts?
