  • Glad she is ok. This story reminded me of the time my younger brother Mickey went missing in Felixstowe. My Mum was in hysterics, it was about 1975 and in those days Felixstowe was still a brilliant day out, there used to be 1000s of people down on the beach, and Mannings was still in its glory years. I believe he was returned by a total stranger, he was grinning away scoffing away on a candy floss.
