Yesterday, it was revealed how a number of walkers had spotted the bizarre sight while strolling through King’s Wood near to Bawtry.

It is not clear who is behind the disturbing display which has been branded ‘sick’ and ‘horrific’ by concerned locals.

It is understood that the dolls have been spotted in several locations around the popular beauty spot which runs alongside the Great North Road.

The woman who made the discovery wrote on Facebook: “Anyone know why these baby dolls have been left in Kings Wood? Feeling pretty freaked out now. Any volunteers to remove them, bring a carrier bag...”

Two of the dolls nailed to trees, with another nestling in the undergrowth.

The incident appears to mirror a similar discovery in Staffordshire last month when a collection of baby dolls was found near to Cannock Chase.

There is a suggestion that the dolls were props used by a local ghost hunting group during a recent video in the woods.

While others have suggested that the dumping of the dolls was people following the recent incident in the West Midlands.

Another Facebook post said: “I think its probably some copycat thing there was something in the news the other day about someone finding some in a wood somewhere near Birmingham.”

In that incident, a 64-year-old woman was left shocked after making the startling find as she walked through Cannock Chase, near Hednesford, on January 28.
