A teddy bear lost in Edinburgh Airport was reunited with a young girl after a cabin crew member was notified of the appeal to trace the bear on social media.

Four-year-old Summer, from Orkney, forgot to put Teddy back in her bag after going through security at Edinburgh Airport.

Loganair cabin crew member Kirsty Walter saw a missing bear appeal and asked colleagues to check the lost property.

After finding the bear, ‘Teddy’ was given his own seat on a flight to Kirkwall and given a crew escort to the terminal.

Waiting on the bear was the owner of the much sought-after bear, with the pair finally being reunited.

Kay Ryan, Commercial Director at Loganair said:“Our cabin crew team quickly tracked down the bear and arranged for him to be on the next service up to Orkney.

“It was wonderful to see Teddy back in the company of Summer and we’re pleased to have played a role. Loganair prides itself on bringing everyone, including Teddy, home for Christmas.”

Loganair operates 22 services per day between the Scottish mainland and Orkney.
