There is a new civic leader in town.

Honiton’s mayor, Councillor David Foster, has been joined by a new furry companion - the Mayor’s Bear.

The Mayor’s Bear has been kitted out with his own mayoral robes, hat and even sports his own piece of Honiton Lace from Allhallows Museum.

Now, he is looking for a name.
