The last creation was spotted only a month ago, but a secret yarn bomber has returned to Ely creating a knitted topper ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next month (June). 

A crocheted design can be found on top of a postbox in close distance to the riverside with a message that reads “congratulations Your Majesty”.

The postbox has already been invaded with knitted toppers many times this year. Last month (April) knitted Turtles were spotted to highlight the dangers they face when rubbish ends up in the sea. 

Photographer Veronica in the Fens spotted the Jubilee creation this morning (May 9).

"The very beautiful crown creation appeared over night at Waterside and it's truly amazing," she said.

“Our secret yarn bomber is so clever and such a talented and creative person; thank you so much for treating us with your talent and creativity.

"You keep wowing us all with these wonderful pieces of art."
