Children who thought they’d never see their lost teddy bears again could soon be reunited with them after a train company launched a special campaign.

‘Mugshots’ of the unclaimed stuffed toys left on trains have been posted by First Great Western on its website in the hopes their owners would recognise them.

The teddies have been found in the south of the country and dozens are currently spread across the lost property offices of different train stations, including Bristol Temple Meads.

Manager of that station, Mike Holmes, hopes to reunite the toys with their owners for Christmas.

‘People need to give their name, the description of the teddy bear and its distinguishing features and we’ll do a recce and see if we can find it,’ he said.

You would hope these teddies have stories to tell of their journeys just like Paddington bear who famously turned up unannounced at the famous London train station he takes his name from.

But last time we checked toys could not speak so we wouldn’t count on it if we were you.
