A sudden and shocking gust of wind in a small cornish village caused a usually straight standing tree to 'lean dramatically'.
Eyewitness Kenwyn Cribbs told us "we were all in the pub when this gust came whippin' by! Next thing ol' leafy, thats the tree, leant like 'er was gonna break!"
The tree has stood on it's plot for more than seventy years. This is the first known occurence of it 'bending alot' in it's history.
The horrific bending action came so suddenly and unexpectedly it even caused a pigeon, who was resting on an upper elevated branch, to fly away quickly.
Experts have told us that trees bending in the wind is totally natural, but this has not detered locals from setting fire to a virgin inside a large wicker man, 'just in case'.
