different length forks?

So I rode my bike home the other day and immediately noticed that the wheel was out of line with the bars, so after checking it out and gingerly riding home. i found out that the left front fork is strangely longer than the right by about 1cm. they were fine riding in in the morning. and it was just sat in the car park all day.  what could have caused this and what can i do about it? 

oh yeah and there doesnt seem to be any fluid leaking out of either fork
