Elderly man told to re­move moon­ing gnomes

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

A coun­cil has or­dered an elderly man to re­move his moon­ing gnomes due to health and safety. Lau­rence Perry, 77, placed the two gar­den or­na­ments out­side his home in Wis­tas­ton near Nantwich, Cheshire, but re­ceived a let­ter say­ing the minia­ture stat­ues with their trousers down can cause a “dis­trac­tion” to mo­torists, the Mir­ror On­line has re­ported. Speak­ing about the in­ci­dent, Lau­rence said: “I feel very dis­ap­pointed. My daugh­ter bought them for Fa­ther’s Day as a bit of fun as she knows I like a laugh. “I’ve worked with oth­ers for four years to turn a piece of land which had been left over­grown, cov­ered in bro­ken bot­tles and bricks, into a more at­trac­tive area.”
