Local Police and an ambulance dashed to Church End Haddenham on Thursday morning, with their 'Blues-and Twos' activated, responding to reports of a body in the pond.
A case of misdirection, though ... perhaps it's the Midsomer legacy?
It eventually turned out that the the sadly true scenario applied to a totally different location.
The body of a man was eventually found in the pond at St Mary's Church in Wendover.
The man, who is believed to be in his 70s, had head and leg injuries, but (according to the BBC) his death is not being treated as suspicious.
We extend our sympathies to his family and friends.
