A BAFFLED couple are not gnome alone — as the ornaments keep appearing in their front garden.
Six have been left in the past 18 months.
The latest — an LGBTQ+ Pride-themed figure — was three weeks ago while Christine and Stephen Lock were on holiday.
Christine, 66, said: “They seem to be being placed overnight, and I haven’t got a clue who is doing it.
“Everybody I’ve asked has denied it — family, friends, neighbours — it’s bizarre.
“They are nice but I’m worried I’ll wake up one morning and the garden will be covered.
“They looked lonely, so I bought a little ornamental house for them in the shape of a cabbage to socialise in.”

He said: “We came home and found the Pride gnome, thinking, ‘Who knew we were there?’.
“It’s quite interesting to come out in the morning, spot a new gnome and just have no clue where these things are from.
“Christine accused me of putting them there, but I’m far too tight.”
