We're pleased to note that Wiltshire Constabulary is committing vital resources to clamping down on that most hardened of criminals: the drunken gnome kidnapper.

According to the latest appeals and CCTV images from Wiltshire Police, the force's zero-tolerance policy towards garden ornament molesters has left them with a sticky problem:

Salisbury Police recently arrested a man who, when searched, was found to be in possession of a garden gnome.

He stated that he had stolen the gnome, but could not remember where from - although it was possibly in the Bourne Avenue area.

If anyone recognises the gnome from home, would they please contact WPC Lucy Smith at Salisbury Police Station on 01722 411444.

We hope that the unnamed, and presumably distraught, gnome is soon reunited with its owner. Any reader with vital information on this case is urged to ring the above number. ®

A commendation to reader Chris Frusher for alerting the appropriate authorities regarding this shocking case.
