I NOTE that from your news item on the St Peter's Church Teddy Bear parachute jump that you have been informed that three of these brave bears are missing.

The bear is apparently unharmed and is being held for a ransom of four gingerbreads at a secret location (I believe if to be a Wisbech Public House). If any of your readers have any information regarding this matter perhaps they could respond through your columns.
