Councillor Simon Parkes has made the bizarre claim that his biological mother is an extraterrestrial.
Parkes stunned his colleagues with the revelation that he believes he first encountered aliens at the age of 8 months and that one of them told him telepathically that it was his mother. "Two green stick things came in," he said. "I was aware of some movement over my head. I was looking straight into its face. It enters my mind through my eyes and it sends a message down my optic nerve into my brain. "
Parkes also claims to have been taken on board an alien spacecraft at the age of 11 but insists that his beliefs don't at all interfere with his duties and responsibilities as councillor.
"Councillor Simon Parkes, who was elected to represent Stakesby ward on Whitby Town Council last month, said although he has had hundreds of close encounters with extra-terrestrials, it will not interfere with his mission to help residents at the seaside resort."
