MP tracks down owner of lost teddy

The Herald - - NEWS -

A SIX-YEAR-OLD has been re­united with her favourite soft toy fol­low­ing a so­cial me­dia ap­peal by an MP who found the bunny aban­doned out­side the House of Com­mons.

Kirsty Black­man, SNP MP for Aberdeen North, found a toy rab­bit at the Car­riage Gates en­trance on July 5 last year.

She took to so­cial me­dia to find the owner but no-one came for­ward for months.

The MP turned to Mum­snet, the par­ent­ing web­site, where a user con­tacted him on Hog­manay say­ing she be­lieved the toy be­longed to her six-year-old daugh­ter.

The woman said she worked near West­min­ster at the time and her daugh­ter was “gut­ted” when the bunny went miss­ing as they had been “in­sep­a­ra­ble since birth”.

She re­claimed the toy on a visit to the Com­mons this week.

Ms Black­man up­dated fol­low­ers on the toy’s time at West­min­ster, in­clud­ing pic­tures of her and the Jel­ly­cat Bash­ful Bunny with Big Ben be­hind them and at PMQs.
