Seemingly written in Polish, the notices – mostly on A4 paper – have been attached to bollards, poles and traffic lights.

While some have been removed in recent days, signs are still up in Repton Park and Canterbury Road, Kennington.

They have also been spotted near Conningbrook Lakes, and close to the William Harvey Hospital.

One resident said: "Sheets have been stuck in various places from the Ashford International hotel, right the way around the Drover's Roundabout and down the whole length of Repton Avenue.

"I understand that it isn't a crime to speak of, but it seems like an unusual thing to do."

Messages saying "I love you" have also been seen spray-painted on the pavement and roads in Repton Avenue.

Another sign reads "w drodze po szczescie" "a journey to happiness", while another on a bollard simply says "kocham", which translates to "love".

The sights have led many residents to speculate over what they could mean.

A common guess has been that the signs are part of an elaborate proposal – the success of which is unknown.
