Twin girls from Skipton who had not seen their mum for almost three months because of the coronavirus lockdown got a huge shock – when she turned up dressed as a bear to give them a hug.

Sally Boocock, a Yorkshire Ambulance Service worker, had stayed away from her 11-year-old daughters, Daisy and Ruby, because of concerns she might pass on the virus.

But the girls were in for a surprise reunion when they went on a specially-organised bear hunt in the woods.

Here's Adam Fowler's report:

Katie Bear is the mascot of the Leeds Children's Heart Surgery Fund. You can find out more about their work here.
