She added: "I spotted yesterday that someone has ripped down most of the fairy garden houses in the woods.

"Someone has left the more subtle wooden ones and taken the rest down."

After she posted pictures of the damage to a local Facebook forum, other residents shared their dismay at why anyone would ruin the display.

One resident said: "Why would they do that? So cruel."

Another added: "Shocking. We can't have anything now."
