THE hunt is on to find the owner of an adorable little handbag that was found in Worthing.

The wicker, kitten bag was found near the Splashpoint Leisure Centre in Brighton Road, Worthing at 3pm on Friday, February 26.

Adur and Worthing Councils shared a photograph of the accessory on social media in the hope that it will go viral and the owner will be found.

A spokesman said the bag contains a purse, mirror, comb, bracelet and “thank you pebble – all of which we’re sure to be very special to the young owner.”

He continued: “Please help spread the word by sharing this post with your relatives, friends and groups.

“If you recognise or would like to know more information on the accessory, contact the Coastal Office on 01903 238977.”
