Farmer's fury as crop circle appears next to heart-shaped wood on Summer Solstice

How fitting it is that on the summer solstice, a time of peace and love, that a crop circle has appeared in a farmer's field right next to a heart-shaped wood.

However, the farmer wasn't in the mood for love and pleace - he has said that the crop circle is an act of vandalism.

The crop circle is 200 feet in diameter and has appeared in a field in Marlborough, Wiltshire.

According to crop circle expert Karen Alexander, the crop circle represents a complicated mathematical formula.

(Not so much) peace and love: Farmer's fury as crop circle appears next to heart-shaped wood on Summer Solstice

The summer solstice is traditionally a time of peace and love.

So it was particularly fitting that this crop circle should appear in a field in Wiltshire yesterday - right next to a heart-shaped wood.

But the sentiment wasn't exactly shared by the farmer whose land the circle appeared on. He blasted the design an 'act of vandalism'.

Unusual: The 200-foot crop circle appeared alongside a heart-shaped wood on the Summer Solstice

A man claiming to be Gavin Davies, the farm's manager, posted an angry message on a website run by crop circle enthusiasts, urging them not to encourage people to visit the field.

He said: 'I have this morning noticed the circle on land that I manage.

'I do not support this vandalism, and demand that this circle, and the location are not reported on your website.

'We will be posting notices on the field stating we do not allow access to the circle, and will regularly monitor the field to ensure this is obeyed.'

Mr Davies said he was concerned visitors could trample on his crops, destroying them in the process.

He said: 'At this stage, the crop remains harvestable, and as a result, we will leave the circle intact.

'If visitors to the site ignore our notices, and continue to walk into the crop, we will mow out the circle.

'I will be taking advice from the local police, and legal advice from our solicitors to counter this act of vandalism.

'Please let the teams behind the circles know they are not welcome here. If we get anymore, we will be forced to mow them out to avoid the hassle. I thank you for your assistance.'

Detailed: The design is striking - but it has angered the farm manager, who branded the crop circle an 'act of vandalism'

Crop circle fans were earlier trying to de-code the 200 foot design which sprung up in a field near Marlborough on the longest day of the year.

Crop circle expert Karen Alexander said: 'It appears to be a complicated mathematical formula and there have been several circles in the area over the years that represent Pi.

'The fact it has appeared next to a heart-shaped wood suggests there is something more significant to the message, especially as it appeared on the Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year.'
Right, an act of supernatural vandalism.......... let's see him take the perps to court...ha, ha, ha.
