Meet Nicolai the bear.

A special international visitor was spotted in Honiton last week.

Nicolai, a toy bear from Russia, was exploring popular sights in the town with his owner Elena Karchenko, pictured - a deisgner, doll maker and lace collector.

On their travels they visited Allhallows Museum to take a look at its large lace collection and were delighted by the friendly reception they received from people in the town.

Sadly, the two bears were unable to be introduced as Diddy is away on his travels.

Nicolai and Elena hope to return to Honiton.
