A teddy bear obsessive has spent more than 40 years building up Britain’s biggest collection of Rupert the Bear memorabilia – and has even given her collection an entire room in her house. Doreen James, from Worcestershire, fell in love with the white bear in a red jumper when she was a little girl – and now, 65 years after being given her first Rupert annual, she is the owner of what she believes is Britain’s biggest collection.
