A witch has announced that he will be standing as an independent candidate in the next general election.
Magus Lynius Shadee, who calls himself the King of All Witches, hopes to become Cambridge's next MP.
Mr Shadee initially planned to open an occult centre in the historic city - to the surprise of religious leaders - but now wants to focus his attentions on his candidacy and may open the centre as a campaign hub.
He said he has contacted the city's returning officer.
"I have withheld the opening of my occult centres and am focusing on the general election," said Mr Shadee.
"I shall hope to stand as an independent. My manifesto will be very forward, and if accepted, will change many directions for the better - for the human race."
