England Ashes heroes commemorated on new stamps
Special delivery for England team


England's Ashes heroes are to be further honoured with a set of special stamps to be issued by the Royal Mail.

Andrew Flintoff, Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen will be the first living people apart from the Royal Family to be identifiable on stamps.

"Royal Mail is committed to celebrating social themes and important occasions central to our way of life," said head of special stamps Julietta Edgar.

The Ashes collection will be available to the public on 6 October.
