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'.
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.'
