Bruce the Gorilla

HAVE you seen Bruce the gorilla?


Bruce, who stands three and a half foot tall, had lived in Michelle Wood's front garden on Myrtle Road, Wombwell, for seven years until he was stolen last weekend.


Bruce was bought as a present by her son Carl, 30, who says Bruce has been a hit with local people.


Carl said: "I can't believe it's been nicked. Children used to come and take pictures of it. I'd really like to get it back because my mum's very fond of it."
