BUSINESSMAN Terry Neeves has thanked The Evening Star after his lost parcel turned up out of the blue.

Mr Neeves, who runs a photo repair service from his home at Hitcham, contacted The Star after Royal Mail lost a parcel containing thousands of pounds worth of equipment.

But he was delighted when he was reunited with the package which he sent to Norfolk.

He had earlier threatened to call the police after the parcel, which contained a camera lens worth £4,000 and another four lenses worth a total of £1,000, never arrived at its destination.

"It seems strange that this parcel should suddenly arrive and I didn't even have to sign for it, which I normally would have expected.
