Charlie jumped into the postbag to escape the rain
A cat is making a name for himself by helping the postman on his rounds in a Somerset town.
Charlie has been travelling with Nick Lock on his rounds in Woolavington for several weeks since he jumped into his postbag to escape the rain.
Mr Lock, 42, told BBC News: "He was soaking wet through and I put my bag down - next thing he was in it.
"Most days now he's about. I think it's because he likes people. I don't think he likes being by himself."
The four-year-old cat belongs to Lara Lucas, 18, who lives on the Meadway Road section of Nick's route.
She said: ''Charlie follows Nick around and does his round with him every day. I think it's adorable. ''I couldn't believe it when he started going around in Nick's bag. When I heard about it I fell into fits of laughter."
