Bear hunt on for Winnie the Pooh

Storybook Glen
The theft was at Storybook Glen over the weekend

A Winnie the Pooh model has been stolen from a popular children's attraction on the outskirts of Aberdeen.

The classic AA Milne figure was taken from from Storybook Glen at Maryculter over the weekend.

The fibreglass model is about 3ft tall, and Grampian Police appealed for information on its whereabouts.

Pc Craig Milne said: "The Winnie the Pooh model taken is obviously quite distinctive. The park itself is quite secluded."

Jacquelyn Liddell, managing director of Storybook Glen, told BBC Scotland: "It's shocking.

"I just wish parents would see where their children are at night."

She said it was difficult to protect the remote 28-acre park.
