Helmet problems for cycling postman

A Nottinghamshire postman is struggling with his own colossal cranium - because he can't find a cycle helmet to fit. Jason Clay, 40, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, has worked for Royal Mail for 20 years. For the past three years, he has used his bike to deliver mail to homes across Sutton-in-Ashfield but a recent change in the company's health and safety rules means he's required to use a helmet.
But, despite exhaustive searches of major chain stores and the internet, the best Mr Clay has found is a 25in XXL helmet from America. And even that doesn't fit. It means he has to walk a new round with a trolley and it is taking an hour longer than usual. "I have always had a problem with hats," said Mr Clay, from Chatsworth Street. I got fitted at a tailors once and he measured my head and said it was the biggest he'd ever seen.
