A woman in France was left terrified after her flat was taken over by ''mutant potatoes''.



Donna Poree had purchased the spuds before lockdown was enforced in March, when she left the property to quarantine with her boyfriend.

When she eventually returned to the flat, Donna found that the potatoes had grown alien-like tentacles and had spread across the flat.

Donna, 22, said: ''As I opened the front door, I noticed a strange shape at the back of the kitchen.

''As the light was off and shutters down, I didn't realise it was the potatoes. It was only after opening the shutters that I took note of this extraordinary sight.

''I was terrified at first, but after realising what it was I laughed a lot and shared a video of the plant on Snapchat.''
