In video: Burnham-On-Sea seafront gardens struck by yarn bombers!

Yarn bombers struck Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove gardens on Saturday (August 9th).

Walls, seats, decking and even the cherub statue in the seafront park were decorated with brightly coloured knitted items, as pictured here.

Yarn bombing was first seen in Burnham last year but it is the first time that Marine Cove has been decorated.

The unique craze has been popular in other parts of the UK where public places are adourned with the multi-coloured artwork to bring a smile to visitors' faces.

The group behind this week's artwork in Burnham are anonymous and it is unknown how many knitters were involved or how long the preparation took.

But the work was appreciated in the Burnham gardens on Saturday. Lesley Cook, who is on holiday from the West Midlands, told "It's so lovely to see. The kids are enjoying it - they especially love the flowers and the woven picnic blanket which is complete with knitted sandwiches!"

Another visitor, Dave Andrews, added: "It's brilliant - they've done such a fantastic job. The cherub statue is superb and the World War 1 themed blanket was very touching."
