Paddington Bear: A good example of the benefits of a liberal immigration policy, this bear (birth name Pastuzo) arrived in 1958 at Paddington Station from darkest Peru without any documentation. Renamed after his point of arrival, he overcame this early obstacle to become a poster bear for the rebirth of Notting Hill. And marmalade. His hard stare was commemorated in bronze by Marcus Cornish in 2000. Paddington Station, W2.
