The authorities have finally rumbled the nation’s most famous illegal immigrant.

That’s right. They’ve got Paddington Bear in a jail cell, waiting to be interrogated. No, really; I’m serious…

In a surprisingly political opening chapter to Paddington Here and Now police interrogate the duffelcoat-wearing stowaway from darkest Peru about his residency status and right to remain in England.

See? The excerpts used above are from an article in The Times, but the story has been picked up just about everywhere, including a condensed piece in a Canadian paper that also mentions that there might be a Paddington film in the works. Paddington Here and Now will be the first new Paddington story from writer Bond in 29 years.
