Baubles on a tree

A girl has apologised to a department store after breaking a Christmas tree bauble - by sending two pound coins in the post.

Five-year-old Faith wrote to John Lewis after the decorative disaster on Saturday.

The letter said: "I'm sorry I broke a Christmas bauble. Here is the money for it."

Manager Dominic Joyce said he would send Faith a present to say thank you for her honesty.

He managed to track Faith down after her mum rang the store.

"We think the drawing is of her holding the bauble - it may be a self portrait," said Dominic.
