Royal Mail has renewed an appeal to find a Beckenham man who designed a stamp more than 40 years ago - aged six.

James Berry, of Bromley Road Infants School, Beckenham, chose a snowman, with a trilby hat on the 1s 6d stamp in 1966. It was the first time children’s work had been used on British stamps and he would now be 51.

Royal Mail spokesman Hilary Robertson said: “We are intrigued to find out how James has got on in his life and what he is up to after all this time. I wondered if someone might be using it as their claim to fame, but I’ve had no success.”
