A roundabout in Ilkeston has officially been named Gnome Island.

The Nottingham Road roundabout was renamed following a vote by Erewash Borough Council last night.

An online petition signed by 520 people was submitted to the council after the little fellas kept appearing on the island. Resident Pamela Lambert, pictured, started the craze which led to social media pages being set up dedicated to the gnome.
