A couple from Leicester have set up two teddy bears with props in their front garden to make people smile during lockdown.

Teresa and Geoff Faulkner have been setting a big teddy bear and a Gromit teddy up in their garden, alongside props, every day during lockdown.

The couple's daughter, Melissa Hopkins, says that they also started doing it for their five grandchildren, aged 1 - 5 years old, who all liked playing with 'Big Teddy' and 'Gromit' at their grandparents house before lockdown.

Francesca, a neighbour of the couple, says that the creations "put a smile on everyone's faces."

Melissa says that some people have even written them thank you cards, too.

"It started as a bit of fun for the grandchildren. We would send them a photograph each day. We didn’t realise how much everyone enjoyed it too. Our daughter helped with some of the props and ideas."
