Disability Equality North West chief executive Mel Close was on her way to work and driving through the Plungington area.

She put out a tweet showing the big teddy sat on the damp pavement.

Mel said: “It’s a high rented area near to where I live and there’s stuff being dumped all the time. I just saw it and thought it was heartbreaking to see the bear out on the street like that.”

PHC Law based nearby in Garstang Road decided to come to the teddy bear’s aid.

To the rescue!

To the rescue!

The legal eagles jumped in their car and headed round to retrieve the cuddly animal.

He was wrapped in a bin bag and smuggled into the back of a waiting car.

There was a happy ending for the teddy
