A member of the public reported to Brighton and Hove City Council that the “wormhole or vortex” had opened up in Montreal Road, Hanover, on May 2.
They made the report via the website Fix My Street which is more typically used to report potholes, dumped rubbish and broken lampposts.
The anonymous poster said: “I was recently walking my affenpinscher (a toy breed of dog) around the Hanover area of Brighton when I noticed that a wormhole or vortex has opened up on Montreal Road.
And a follow up noted that it’s getting worse emitting a yellow light with a large snake coming out of it. Yikes! Sounds serious!
A wormhole is a hypothetical shortcut through spacetime. We don’t know what it looks like.
The comments reflect a tongue-in-cheek worry that various drugs are involved. This quote from the Fortean Times Message Board is humorous:
Brighton’s been in another dimension since 1980 at least
I have no response to this… other than LOL. Someone had some time on their hands to prank the website.
