Wookey witch casts off cloak
The witch of Wookey Hole Caves has resigned to launch her own retro clothing shop after being inspired by the costumes she had to wear.
Actress Sunny Van der Pas has handed in her notice at the Somerset tourist attraction where she has been playing the part of the witch for the last two years.
She will leave the £50,000 a year (pro rata) job next month and has opened a shop called Past And Presents in Bovey Tracy, Devon, selling 1950s style clothing.
She said: "I kept accessorising the witch costumes and I just love fashion. It has been fantastic being the witch but now I want to run my own business and I have great ambitions for the shop. I'd like it to be a chain and maybe even launch a children's version.

"The witch costume has inspired me but you can only take so much of living in a cave. I'm now looking for something more like Dragon's Den."
