Delivered by Royal Mail // Royal Mail / Lancashire and / South Lakes / 25.01.13

UPDATE: Margaret reports that Plymouth and Cornwall mail centre had this error on 21.01.13

UPDATE: Thanks to Stuart for sending this image showing that North West Midlands had corrected the error by 29 January

And to Doug for sending this one from Cambridge Mail Centre 30.01.13

And John for this one from Manchester also 30.01.13

Please look at your incoming mail and let us know of any other offices (and dates) with the incorrect slogan, and dates when it was corrected - many thanks!  Scans will be useful.
