In what sounds like something of a modern-day version of the Cottingley Fairy case, a trio of women in England contend that they can see fairies and say that they have video evidence to prove it. Jesse Smart, Rebecca Broomfield, and Karen Kay call themselves 'fairy whisperers' and recently appeared on a British morning television show to discuss their alleged ability to perceive the legendary elemental entities. During the surprisingly lengthy segment their story is treated with a remarkable level seriousness despite the fantastic nature of their claims as well as their questionable decision to wear fairy costumes on the show.
During the interview, Karen Kay explained that fairies can appear in "all different sizes and shapes," including one instance in which she encountered on that was "as big as a tree." This particular encounter proved to be revelatory for the self-proclaimed 'whisperer' as it upended her previous belief that the entities were diminutive. As to what the fairies want, Kay likened them to guardian angels of the 'nature realm' and indicated that they are revealing themselves in order to raise awareness of environmental threats facing the planet.
In an effort to back up their claims, Smart provided the program with what she says is footage of a fairy which she encountered during a walk near a stream. You can see that clip as well as the 'fairy whisperers' full appearance on the British TV program at the Coast to Coast AM website.
