First-claws delivery not up to scratch

A FAMILY face being blacklisted by postal staff unless they keep their cat under control.

Carl White, 36, from Portsmouth, has received a warning letter from the Royal Mail after pet Lana scratched a postman's hand as he put letters through the letterbox.

He, wife Carol, 26, and children Jack, ten, and Connor, seven, are taking extra measures to keep the cat and postie apart.
