Real life Hogwarts in the making

A lottery winner from the US has said he will be using part of his $49million lottery winnings to set up his very own Hogwarts-style school of witchcraft and wizardry.

Elwood 'Bunky' Bartlett, who is a high priest of Wicca - a religious group - did in fact attribute his lucky win to his religion, in particular to the Mystickal Voyage new age shop.

The school's working title is Willow Springs Sanctuary and will be built in Maryland.

What we want to know is if he's also planning to extend the space between platforms 9 and 10 at Kings Cross Station for future pupils to travel from Europe? And who will be the headmaster? We heard on the grapevine that Ian McKellen is keen to get back into wizarding...
