The bear statue at White Rock

At the East Beach end of the White Rock promenade, this enormous granite bear looks out over his watery dominions, now at low tide.

As  his well-rubbed coat and nose show, those who come here like to stroke him for luck.

Kids climb on him, people get their pictures taken beside him, and walkers take a turn round him before heading back along the beach.

Called Grizlee, the statue has stood here for 15 years as a memorial placed by a father, Frank Slavin, for his son Lee.
