A TAXI driver was left stunned when he saw a cloud resembling Tinker Bell from Peter Pan in Cumbria.
Stuart Curtis, 44, couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the magical cloud formation that appeared in the sky on September 23.
The dad-of-four spotted the spell-binding formation in the sky while driving to a petrol station on his day off.
The quick-thinking taxi driver stopped and got out of his Skoda Octavia before snapping a photo on his mobile in Carlsise.
Stuart, originally from Sunderland, said: “I was in my taxi but obviously can’t use my phone while behind the wheel so jumped out of the cab and stood at the side of the road where I took a photo of the cloud.
“Fifteen minutes beforehand, I could see something was forming but then it seemed to break away from the cloud.
“I looked up and knew straight away that it looked like something familiar.
“As I was driving around the roundabout she was more prominent and out on her own.
“It was a bit of magic. Carlisle seems to be a real hotspot for cloud phenomenon, but Tinker Bell is one of a kind.
“The first thing people have asked is, ‘is this Photoshopped?’ I have done nothing to the photo, what you see is what I saw.”
Stuart shared the image on social media and many were quick to comment.
One wrote on Facebook: “Wow that is amazing.”
Another added: “More Captain Marvel than Tink to me but very cool.”
One said: “Take a photo of the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow while you’re at it.”
Tinker Bell is a fictional character from J M Barrie’s 1904 play Peter Pan before the 1911 novelisation Peter and Wendy.
