JANUARY 10, 1954, HEANOR, DERBYSHIRE, R-U., A PARK KEEPER:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The author of a 1954 UFO book tells that on January 10, 1954, for several nights, a mystery man with Herculean physique caused trouble in a memorial park garden at Heanor, Derbyshire.

In the morning, the keeper has found steel name-plates, half an inch thick, broken in a half or bent double, and a copper beech tree snapped in two at the thick bole.

The mystery man had also wrenched a sundial from its base, torn up 20 rose trees and 100 wallflower plants, and given the impression that a mad bull elephant had been at large, stampeding in the night hours.

The police could not find him, and a reward offered for his capture remained unclaimed.

There is no other information that I am aware of.

Narratives:

[Ref. hw1:] HAROLD T. WILKINS:

The author indicates that on January 10, 1954, for several nights, a mystery man with Herculean physique caused trouble in a memorial park garden at Heanor, Derbyshire.

In the morning, the keeper has found steel name-plates, half an inch thick, broken in a half or bent double, and a copper beech tree snapped in two at the thick bole.

The mystery man had also wrenched a sundial from its base, torn up 20 rose trees and 100 wallflower plants, and given the impression that a mad bull elephant had been at large, stampeding in the night hours.

The police could not find him, and a reward offered for his capture remained unclaimed.

Points to consider:

I could not find any independent ufological source corroborating this affair, apparently mysterious but deprived of UFO, with an Herculean character of which it is not even known whether he was seen or not.
