Nova Bickmore, 69, could not believe the sight when she visited her father's grave.
She said: ‘There were thousand upon thousand of caterpillars and a silk web all over the trees, which had no leaves left.
‘Some of the caterpillars were hanging down from the trees and others were all over the floor.
‘It was a really ghostly scene.’ In their caterpillar stage, the bugs, known as web worms, weave leaves of trees together and eat them from their nests.
