A man who believes trees contain evil woodland spirits has been arrested after attacking 100 trees near the Eiffel tower.

Police say the 38-year-old was spotted by gardeners at 4.30am hammering nails into the branches and painting the trunks of the trees.

Once they convinced him to climb down from a large chestnut tree on the Champs de Mars, he explained his action to them.

He said the nail and paint attack was the only way to rid the trees of the "demon forces" contained within.

I feel like I should claim this in Columbus as I paint all the trees maize or blue.
