Tipsy Terrace Telegraph

Concerns are mounting following reports that a strange “Flash of Bright Green” has been spotted in the sky at various times of the day and night over the village of Los Gigantes and the surrounding areas.

Residents and holiday makers alike are toiled and troubled that the dark object with flourecent green hair and matching accessories could belong to that of a witch.

Neighbourhood watch in both Jazmin and Hibisco I and II first noticed the unusual object on Monday.

Experts suggest that the recent introduction of Halloween decorations at Tipsy Terrace Bar & Bistro have increased the curiosity of what could be the return of The Wicked Witch of the West.

Also, the arrival of Wanda the Witch; the oh-so-ugly but oh-so-very friendly new member of Team Tipsy, could have sparked deep rooted jealousy and drawn the bad witch closer to the village than ever known before.

The Policía Local have put this down to nothing more than rumours from a leaky couldron but Team Tipsy would be grateful if any further sightings could be reported to the bar as soon as possible.
