Default Royal Mail auctions off undelivered mail

Now we know where that undelivered item may have ended up

Royal Mail has been criticised by Labour for failing to keep keeping a record of nearly 1m of undelivered letters and parcels, including birthday and Christmas presents, which it sells off every year.
