That's one cool postman - delivery man wears shorts in the snow!

Burnham-On-Sea postman Les Wadley clearly doesn't feel the cold... for even in this week's snow he continued to wear his familiar shorts!

The postie got a few surprised looks when he was out delivering letters and parcels in the town with several inches of snow under foot this week.

But he told he was unfazed by the attention.

"Several postmen in Burnham had a bet whether we could go a whole year delivering mail whilst wearing our shorts, whatever the weather conditions," he explained. "I'm currently winning!"

"I don't feel the cold very much, but just walk a bit faster in wintry weather!"
