English town try to create touching Diana tribute, instead they made this...

Will the nation’s obsession with Princess Diana ever end? It’s been 20 years since her tragic death, with her boys all grown up and even having sprogs of their own.

But for whatever reason, a lot of the general public (and the Daily Express) are still massively into celebrating her legacy/speculating on whether Prince Phillip did it – and if it makes people happy then who are we to criticise.

However, out of all the thousands of tributes that have been made to the People’s Princess, this may very well be the worst.

Twitter user @shornKOOMINS posted photos of a new memorial in Chesterfield, made to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death, and it is utterly – unintentionally – terrifying. Prepare yourselves.

I want to die.

Unsurprisingly, the reaction on Twitter was ‘mixed’:

Clearly, given they are most famous for building a spire very, very badly, Chesterfield isn’t particularly fond of making things that are good.
