Gyles Brandreth's 1,000 teddies move to Newby Hall

A collection of 1,000 teddy bears, including Sooty and the original Paddington Bear, has moved to a permanent home at Newby Hall in North Yorkshire.

They are the lifetime collection of broadcaster Gyles Brandreth and his wife, Michele Brown.

The Brandreth Bear collection could "keep on growing" at Newby Hall, Mr Brandreth said.

It was previously held at the former Teddy Bear Museum in Stratford-on-Avon.
