Creepy News: A middle-aged man who has filled most of the rooms in his house with a huge collection of dolls says that it is ‘perfectly innocent’ and ‘nothing untoward’.

Herbert Rayner, 53, from Smethwick, West Midlands, says that the collection of dolls – which fills all three bedrooms of his house – is just a result of him being an ‘avid toy enthusiast’.

“It’s quite a large collection I admit,” says Rayner. “And some people find it a bit weird to be in my house, which is probably why I don’t get any visitors these days. Personally I quite like it – hundreds of expressionless eyes watching me. Often I’m totally in the nude.”

Rayner also says that the time his neighbours saw him having a tea party with some of the dolls in his back garden was ‘just a misunderstanding’.

“It’s not like I genuinely thought the dolls were thirsty and wanted a cup of tea,” laughed Rayner. “We all know that dolls don’t drink tea. They only drink the blood of hitchhikers. And feeding time can be so very, very messy.”
