In spite of news reports confirming the death of the al-Qaeda leader, local residents from several villages up and down the UK have sparked a nationwide terror alert.
Calls have been made to 999 from hundreds of concerned people, all of whom believe they have spotted the world's most-wanted terrorist in their high street.
Chris in Wales says he saw Bin Laden eating candyfloss at his local fairground and getting a free ride on the waltzer.
Sarah says she saw Bin Laden taking scraps out of her wheelie bin, saluting a bollard and laughing maniacally at a lamppost, before being chased down the street and mauled by a dog.
A renowned psychologist from the University of Morecambe explains that "Elvis syndrome" is a well documented phenomenon and occurs when a vast collective learn of the death of a well known evil person.
The condition is named after Dr Sid Elvis who investigated the claims of people who said they saw Charlie Chaplin giving a public speech at Nuremberg in 1933, six days after his death was mistakenly reported in the New York Times.
Dr Sid Elvis later went on to be discredited after it transpired that Charlie Chaplin actually was in Nuremberg at the time, doing an impression of Adolf Hitler.
