Overnight, a group of gnomes appeared around the area and on all the tables outside the Abbey Arms. There was even a rabbit on the back step and a frog on the bin. They were not there when we left the site last night
Mick Radford, Mick Brown and Ian Darler found the group on their arrival this morning or did they really find them? are they the main culprits. A gang of shifty characters trying to cover their tracks. Normally the first people on the scene are the guilty suspects.
We asked Nelson what had happened and who had brought them. He was keeping very quite after last week and denied all knowledge. He seemed scared to speak out but may have to do so if there is a court case before the beak. Perhaps a case for Captain Beaky who caught Hissing Sid some years ago.
We asked the Gnomes and they were only saying they had come to help. Throughout the day we tried to get the information out of them without joy. They did some painting and did not need to do a second coat. Top painters
So who are the main suspects -
Mick Radford early bird of the group however most of the gnomes were taller than him.
Mick Brown who denied knowledge but said he had lots of owls. He could have helped commit the act with Nelson
Alan Burge not likely he is never at the ground early enough so a complete outsider. Also none of the gnomes drank tea
Ben Phillips he is a possible candidate and favourite with the investigators because he has previous form with gnome stunts
Two squirrels who ran off under the building
The return of the Moles bringing them through their secret corridor of tunnels
or is it Ian whose wife Lisa did not sound surprised at the act and was also encouraging the sailor gnome from the boat The Lawn to visit the Yorkshire seaside resort of Whitby in the near future.
Who do you think is the guilty one who brought them in under the cloak of darkness
