EXCLUSIVE: Homeowners will have to show their passport or driving licences on the doorstep - in a bid to prevent knives being delivered to juvenile

Posties will join the blitz on knife crime by asking for proof of age before handing over packaged blades.

They will ask to see photographic identification like passports or driving licences on the doorstep to prevent knives being delivered to juveniles.

The crackdown will be enforced in time for Christmas and follows a 20-inch machete being left by a front door after an order was placed on Amazon.

A Royal Mail spokesman said: “We are taking prudent measures to support the Government’s ambition to reduce knife crime.”

Currently, people usually only show proof of age to collect at a delivery office.

It is understood workers have been told age-restricted items will have stickers on parcels to help to ensure ID is checked on delivery.

The new policy could mean delays if adults are not home for deliveries. And posties warn that items that fit through letterboxes may not be checked.

I haven't got time to stand on someone's doorstep while they spend ages trying to find their drivers license it's bad enough with some of them finding the key to the door, I'm assuming the quantity of these items will be quite small so what about treating them like a surcharge in that they have to be collected from the caller's office with the correct id.

The trouble is this is just the start of age restricted items even dildos are dangerous and as are caffeinated drinks and not least all plastic items who resemble a gun or weapon even though real guns are endemic as are kitchen knifes and dildos are in number 10. But as I say it is not the item it is the use of the item in committing crime and the sentence for committing the crime that fits will prevent the misuses of items in future ie no light sentence for murder no matter the age of the individuals!

The point of sale is the best way credit cards ie the ability of control of finance the legal point of sale is purchase of which it is a possession to be in possession of and item to buy an item. It is not for those who do a humble job as I do you do to police this nation with crap laws by crap politicians who cannot even get their fingers out of their own arseholes!

That doesn't prove anything as the person receiving the item won't always be the person that bought the item.

Do mean to say people are stupid enough to give them access to their payment info then those who authorised them to use credit in their name or were stupid enough to not secure it should face the full force of the law for said actions or inaction's sorry not buying this line of they do not know what is done in their name by their own kids bullshit!

Take Amazon for an example, you can specify where it's sent to when placing an order and it doesn't have to be your own address. The person placing the order can still be the one whose credit/debit card it is but the person receiving it can be a different person and not even necessarily at the same address

Well that law needs amending not making 10 other laws and systems that will be found around again by smarter people who we pay £85,000 a year plus expenses, I for one IF THIS EVER CAME IN WOULD JUST NOT HAND ANYTHING OVER even if they were over 80 years old had a passport and driving licence and live in Buckingham Palace, It is a step too far putting the burden upon us all for the failures of our political elites of our nation!

Knives should not be obtainable online ,so there should be no deliveries of any dangerous object.I will not be doing the governments,police or shop job .If it is sent through the postal system it should have a grey card to collect from caller's office.If they start forcing me to ask for id then bags will be taken back .So Royal mail managers extra work for me then extra work for you simples.
