A SEARCH is underway for a tall Paddington Bear figure, previously used as a charity collection box, which was stolen from a garden in Lowestoft.

The 2ft tall plastic/ fibreglass bear went missing from the garden of a home in Osborne Street between 11pm on Monday and 9am yesterday, Tuesday November 11.

The figure - a former charity collection box - was positioned high up and it's thought the thief would have used a ladder, or been standing on something in order to reach it.
