Garden invaded by 107 gnomes

A woman was stunned to find 107 gnomes carefully arranged in her front garden. Police were called at about 1.30am after the woman found the gnomes, including a formation 30 rows deep and three abreast.

Officers are now investigating the incident, which took place in Ivybridge, Devon, between 9.30pm on June 1 and 1.30am the following day.

A local garden centre has been checked, but no gnomes have been reported missing, a spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said.
