An anonymous team of nimble-fingered yarn bombers surprised townsfolk in Sheringham today (Monday) with a jubilee-themed treat.

A woolly row of knitted crowns were wrapped Banksy-style, around the lamp posts at random locations in the town centre.

The knitting group - who wanted to remain anonymous - dubbed themselves “The Loops”.

A spokesman from the group said: “We wanted to make people smile and bring ‘yarn sprinkling’ to the town.”

Yarn bombing - or sprinkling - is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.

  • Get "OFF" their backs. This should be encouraged. Just suggest a time limit for the displays
