Where they came from is a mystery - but yarnbombers have been praised for leaving "gorgeous Easter treats" on top of postboxes in Leiston.

The acts of crochet kindness appeared out of the blue in Old Post Office Square this week, complete with bunnies and chicks to celebrate Easter.

Leiston Library posted some of the creations on its Facebook page, including a colourful green 'hat' with Easter animals on top of a Royal Mail postbox.

But there was also crochet bunting at the library, with organisers saying: "It makes our little corner look very spring-y and jolly."
