A man has received a returned magazine through his door - that was originally posted a staggering 60 years ago!

Will Jenkins, 25, was working in his office on the Strand, in London, when the mailman delivered the unopened, December 1953 issue of Illustrated London News.

The old-fashioned mag, featuring snaps of the Queen's trips, was originally delivered to an address in New York but, after six decades of being lost, was returned to Will's office.

After questioning the Royal Mail about the incident, it was discovered that there had been a mix up in addresses. But surely that couldn't account for such a long delay?!

Now there's a blast from the past!
