A bear arrested at a London railway station said he was ‘coerced’ into smuggling marmalade in small containers into Britain from South America.
Arrested as he got off the Heathrow Express, the bear has not yet been identified. A police spokesman said ‘When we asked the bear his name, he looked up and the first thing he saw was the station name, which he gave as his own. Oldest trick in the book. We are in the interim calling him Pooh Bear, after where he allegedly hid the marmalade.’
