Hospital bosses in Clevedon are appealing for the safe return of a wooden bunny to its grounds.

Bigwig lived in the garden outside The Little Teapot café at the North Somerset Community Hospital in Old Street.

The rabbit, named after a character in Waterhship Down, is believed to have been taken from the hospital in early June.

Matt Croughan, clinical lead at the minor injury unit, said: “This is a hare-raising story of a kidnap and we are hoping Bigwig will hop back to us soon.

“But joking aside, we would really like whoever removed Bigwig to return him.

“He was a great addition to our beautiful garden, which is tended by volunteers, and it seems a shame someone has chosen to deprive the hospital of our Bigwig.”

The hospital’s inpatients unit is currently closed to undergo a refurbishment, and is expected to reopen in September.
