THE Great Gold Rush is under way in Huddersfield – and you can’t lick it.
Thousands of people are flocking to the town’s post offices for a little piece of Olympics history.
They are snapping up coveted Olympics heroes stamps – produced by the Royal Mail only hours after each of Team GB’s triumphs in the London Olympics.

And the next will be former Holmfirth cyclist Ed Clancy, who clinched gold last night.
Many are eagerly sought by Huddersfield philatelists, who have their names on waiting lists for every new stamp issued by the Royal Mail.
But others are being bought by ordinary people who want a little piece of Olympic memorabilia.
Lindley Post Office sub postmaster Steve Masih gets the stamps within hours of release and said: "There is a real buzz about these stamps and the Olympics.
"Each office gets only a limited number to sell and many of them are ordered by the stamp collectors. But many other people are coming in to buy them and we are selling out very quickly of each batch.
