The Harry Potter Canon

A rogue Welsh Green dragon descends on a beach full of Muggle holidaymakers (FB). Tilly Toke and her family happen to be there (FW), and her family casts the largest Mass Memory Charm of this century on all the Muggles of Ilfracombe. She is later awarded the Order of Merlin First Class for her quick action to avoid breaking the International Statute of Secrecy (FB). The Muggles later remember nothing of the incident, with the exception of an old fellow known as Dodgy Dirk, who still claims that a “dirty great flying lizard” attacked him on the beach. People think he’s crazy, of course (FW).
