A mystery knitter has been decorating post boxes with figures of key workers in a small Surrey village. The first knitted creation appeared on a post box in West End, near Woking, a few weeks ago and more have been cropping up since. “It’s a mystery as to who is doing them – we have our very own Banksy!” said Lizzie Austin, who has spotted them on walks with her two children. The knitted figures include NHS workers, bin collectors, firefighters and other key workers.
