A couple who were renovating a former Post Office building have discovered a historic unsent letter under the stairs.

Richard and Tracy Ward from Devil's Bridge, Ceredigion in West Wales, found a letter in Welsh that was written more than 60 years ago while renovating a house they moved into two years ago.
