Paddington Bear is to appear on 10 special stamps released by the Royal Mail to mark his 65th anniversary.
Six of the stamps feature images from animator Ivor Wood’s comic strip cartoons first published in the London Evening News in the 1970s.
The Peruvian bear first appeared in 1958 in Michael Bond’s book A Bear Called Paddington.
It is the first time he has been dedicated his own stamp set.

He was also included in a stamp set released by Royal Mail in 1994.
In the story, Paddington adopted by the Brown family in London and named after the railway station where he arrived.
