Royal Mail issues panto-themed Christmas stamps

Royal Mail has unveiled its Christmas stamps which this year feature pantomime characters to evoke the festive spirit.

The stamps will be on sale from November 4.

First Class stamps will carry Aladdin's Genie while the burly bullies from Cinderella, the Ugly Sisters, will appear on Second Class post. Higher value stamps will feature Peter Pan's Captain Hook and Snow White's Wicked Queen.

The stamp designs are digital illustrations based on photographs - created in collaboration with Bristol-based photographer Peter Thorpe - and feature local people and commercial models.

Last year's 1st and 2nd Class Madonna and Child stamps, featuring a work by Lippo di Dalmasio produced between 1390 and 1400, will also be available again.
