A much-loved bear has provided the inspiration for a new exhibition.

Children's favourite Paddington Bear is the focus for the display at Seaton Holme, Easington Village, which runs until January 23.

Provided by Mavis Sherwood from Easington, items include china ornaments, one of the first bears produced, books and even some of Paddington's favourite food.

A spokeswoman for Seaton Holme said: "Mavis has been an avid collector for many years, and has kindly loaned her collection to us, so come along to Seaton Holme and see her display."

The venue is open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm.
