Bear goes to ground on trip to the TT!

A UK nursery’s appealing for Island residents to help search for their most popular member of staff.

Holiday Bear takes trips with children at the Little Learners nursery in Lancashire – but vanished while visiting the Isle of Man between the Quarterbridge and Sea Terminal during TT Race Week.

A Facebook appeal to find him's gone viral with more than 850 people sharing his photo online.

Nursery owner Lynsey Blane says she understands why he’d want to stay on the Island, but says losing the small grey elephant would mean heartbreak for the children.

If you’ve found Holiday Bear, you can contact Lynsey by emailing info@littlelearners.uk.com

She says he’s possibly Britain’s most jet-setting bear – and she’d like him to come home.
