Said Michelle: "Layla is very happy that she has another one.

She added: "She was lost without it. Layla took him everywhere. She has had him since birth and he's very special to her."

The comforter toy was lost at the Morrisons supermarket in Woodfield Way on April 23.

Added Michelle: "Jambo was bought from the Yorkshire Wildlife Park and named after the giraffe there called Jambo."
