Have your say

A REWARD has been offered for the safe return of a teddy bear stolen in a burglary.

The criminals forced their way into Margaret Gordon’s home in Long Lane, Bursledon between 7am on September 27 and 9.30am on September 28 and stole an antique table, clock, compass, watch and Margaret’s beloved childhood teddy, passed down from her mother Joan Bass, who died in 1964. Her home was also broken into in February.

Mrs Gordon said: ‘Now I feel I have nothing left of my mum. In February they took all her jewellery and I thought, at least I still have her teddy. Now I don’t even have that. He isn’t worth a penny but is of huge sentimental value.’

She is offering a reward for the return of the bear. Anyone with any information should contact 101, quoting Operation Nemesis.
