On Thursday The Evening Star reported that Beckham the Bunny had gone missing for the second time in one week from her home in Chesterfield Drive, Ipswich, leaving her owner, Laura Gooding, 12, desperate for her return.

The Bursar at Sidegate Primary School, Chris Dorling is currently in the process of contacting animal rescue groups in the hope Eric's owners can be found.

She said: “We thought perhaps we might have a parent in the school come in and claim him but no one's come forward yet.”
