The trustees of Wayford Woods in Crewkerne, Somerset, have issued an appeal to fairy house builders to tone it down, after more than a 100 fairy doors appeared.

Wayford Woods in Crewkerne, Somerset, have issued an appeal to fairy house builders to tone it down, after more than a 100 fairy doors appeared.
The woods, now known as the 'Fairy Woods', have been delighting children for the past few years, after the first little door appeared at the bottom of a tree.
Families have flocked to the enchanted woods to see the doors of the homes of the fairies and leave little messages but there are now concerns about the damage to the woodland area these human visitors are creating.
A group of volunteer trustees is appealing for people not to screw any more doors directly to trees and to avoid over-decorating.
Actor, writer and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth offered his own cheeky tribute to friend Linda Bellingham, as he attended her funeral in Crewkerne today.
Fireworks sparked and crackled in the sky above St Barholomew's Church, Crewkerne, as Linda Bellingham was laid to rest this afternoon.
As people remember the actress Lynda Bellingham whose funeral is being held in Somerset, we remember the moment she told us all about Calendar Girls.
We interviewed her when the stage show came to the Bristol Hippodrome in January 2011.
What a star!
Friends, family and former colleagues from the world of entertainment have been arriving at St Bartholomew's Church in Crewkerne, Somerset to pay tribute to the actress and presenter Lynda Bellingham. She died last month at the age of 66 after a long battle with cancer.
Here are some of the pictures
The friends and family of Lynda Bellingham will gather today to say goodbye to the actress who died last month.
Her husband, Michael Pattemore, and friends from the world of television will pay tribute to the star at her funeral in the Somerset town of Crewkerne.
The actress, best known for her long-running role as the mother in the Oxo TV adverts, had colon cancer which later spread to her lungs and liver.
She was diagnosed with cancer last July and said she decided to end her treatment to limit the amount of suffering her family would witness.
I can tell you now that the words on her gravestone will be 'The curtain went up on May 31 1948, and the final curtain went down on October 19 2014'.
