A man who lives with 900 gnomes says there is no room in his life for a wife.
Ron Broomfield is so obsessed with gnomes he even dresses up as one twice a week.
His fascination has so far cost him Ã‚Â£20,000.
The 67-year-old shares his home in the Lincolnshire market town of Alford with the gnomes.
‘I’m not married any more but, to be frank, there’s no room for a woman. Gnomes have become my life,’ he said.
