A road in the UK has become so warped that parts of it are now sitting at a 45-degree angle.
The anomalous damage, which has been reported on the B4069 near Lyneham in Wiltshire, England, has recently become the focus of a mystery that has left local authorities scratching their heads.
At a glance, the stretch of tarmac could easily be mistaken for the site of a major earthquake, with the road surface twisted and broken as if it were the aftermath of some geological catastrophe.
In reality, however, no earthquake has occurred.
Instead, local authorities have blamed the damage on "unexplained underground movements."
"It could costs hundreds of thousands or up into the millions [to repair the damage]," said Dr Mark McClelland of Wiltshire Council.
"There is significant damage to the road. It could be up to 12 months in total. It's not something that can be resolved in a matter of days or weeks."
"The underlying ground has slipped and we need to understand why that has happened. "
Incredibly, some motorists have continued to navigate the road despite police warnings.
An investigation by geotechnical specialists is currently underway.
