London - The find comes nearly one year after the discovery of a dead man 'impersonating a major arcana Tarot card' opposite Buckingham Palace - as reported by QM-NewsCorpse.

"It's an eerie echo of the July 2011 incident," an early morning jogger commented, "where the No 12 Hanged Man card was dangling from a redwood sequoia opposite the Queen's pad."

That event was blamed on failed psychic predictions involving royalty where the Queen's relatives were forced to slum it in the austerity-wracked Kingdom.

This morning's 'copycat' find saw a 'Hanged Man' in Hyde Park's Italian Gardens close to an ornamental pond.

The area was immediately cordoned off as Royal Protection Racket cops issued a warning about another grim anniversary which today's tragedy might be mirroring.

Thirty years ago on 19th June 1982 the dodgy Italian financier Roberto 'God's Banker' Calvi was discovered hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in a murder incident still baffling police.

Two weeks ago the Queen's Diamond Jubilee barge blithely sailed past the Calvi's RIP scene as cheering crowds ignored a rumored hex on that stretch of river.

"Now it's all coming back to haunt the Windsors," a Royal Parks Agency groundsman said.

"They've always known certain London landmarks are haunted - or, like Hyde Park, notorious for failed Tarot predictions."

The Agency's psychic tree surgeons have always drawn a line at mucking about with too much pruning around Hyde Park's Princess Diana Memorial Fountain, located close by.

It's meant that removal of toxic hexoplasm from weeping willows around the tribute water feature is outsourced to experienced exorcists at the MoD.

The Earl of Wessex is partially blighted.
