A paranormal expert who has written several books on poltergeists and UFO sightings has become the Conservatives’ newest MEP.

Rupert Matthews, who until the end of last month was a lecturer for an online-only university which focuses on the paranormal, was appointed to fill a vacant seat representing the East Midlands after Andrew Lewer became an MP.

As well as his work with the International Metaphysical University, he is best known as the author of a range of parapsychology books including titles such as Paranormal Surrey and A History of Alien Activity from Sightings to Abductions to Global Threat.
