Offbeat News: Scores of witches, fairies, goths and druids gathered in Britain’s first pagan funeral for centuries - for real-life wizard

Eron the Wizard - a former builder named Ian Wilson - died aged 63 earlier this month from cancer.

He was convinced he had magical powers and was dedicated to wizardry, touring the UK and spreading his form of ‘magic’.

His dying wish was for a celebration of his life in the way of Wicca, the modern pagan, witchcraft religion.

A large crowd gathered for his unique send-off - complete with a convoy of Subaru Imprezas, including his own yellow Impreza estate.
