'Jog memories'

An RAF mascot which accompanied crews on bombing runs during World War Two has been reported missing.
Staff at Metheringham Airfield Visitor Centre said the stuffed toy was loaned out last year, but was never returned.
Mr Fox is described as wearing a red coat and jodhpurs, and has details of some of the missions he was on written on his leg.
The mascot was on more than 30 bombing raids with 106 Squadron, including one the night before D-Day.

The mascot went missing last summer when he was loaned out for a display, but due to a mix up with the paperwork it is not known who took him.
The error came to light as staff were preparing displays for the 2017 season.
Mr Marson said: "What's probably happened is he's got packed up after a display and is languishing in a store room somewhere."
He is hoping the appeal might jog people's memories.
