This picture posted on Twitter today by the Irish Red Cross shows two-year old Stella Lovering arriving safely at a relief centre after fleeing the bush fires that have ravaged the Australian state of Tasmania.

The stuffed toy she's clutching is a Trauma Teddy, knitted by volunteers and handed out by the Australian Red Cross to kids who are caught up in disaster.

You'd need a heart of stone.
