What happens to things that are "lost in the post" ?

Since matter can't just vanish into thin air, they must be *somewhere*.

1) damaged in transit - presumably the royal mail have procedures for items like this

2) stolen by employee[1] - although unless it looked like it had money in it, not likely

3) wrongly delivered - worrying if there was no tracking

4) somehow in the wrong part of "the system" - a thorough search should locate them

5) stolen by employee [2] - deliberately targeted. Raises more questions than it answers

6) we are of course assuming they made it to the postbox ....

However, there is a certain life-affirming feeling knowing that Royal Mail can cock it up for the great and glorious as well as for the little guy.

I wonder how long the MoJ had to spend on the phone ?
