The Police are often accused of not have a sense of humour but for once they have surpassed themselves today after receiving reports from members of the public of a man carrying a “small child” on the M60 Motorway near Manchester. It turns out the man was actually carrying a Garden Gnome. Concerned drivers contacted police after the man was spotted near junction two of the motorway in Greater Manchester. He was later arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

Displaying an unusual sense of humour, officers tweeted: “Earlier we had a lady taking her dog for a walk on the M60 now we have a man carrying a gnome.”

Greater Manchester Police then went one better by tweeting a photo of the gnome saying: “Now safe and well in our office after being taken from a pedestrian M60 J2. This is a Missing from Gnome Enquiry!”

One road user tweeted: “Did I really just see a dude walking along the hard shoulder of the M60 carrying a gnome?”

Another added: “Just seen a man carrying a gnome down the M60. Best commute ever.”

…and it’s not even April 1st yet!
