A teddy that was abandoned at Bristol Airport in February last year was once owned by a family from Abergavenny in South Wales.

The discovery attracted a lot of interest all around the world, with historians and toy makers all coming forward with help.

The airport says the bear - which was in a carrier bag with a photo of two children dated 1918 - belonged to Dora and Glyn Baker from Abergavenny but they haven't been able to find any living relatives.

Staff had called the bear Glyn but, since the discovery, have now renamed it "Bristol Bear".
