While parliament battles over the validity of the withdrawal of Iceland’s EU application and approval for the ruling coalition plummets in wake of protests, the BBC has found time to report on a hard hitting elf story.

The BBC reports that following a long-running dispute, a large rock – considered by a self-declared seer as an elf church – has been moved to make way for the construction of a road.

The move has, according to the aforementioned seer and elf-activist, Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, been approved by the elves who have had a year and a half to prepare for the relocation of their church – called Ófeigskirkja. Ragnhildur believes the elves will be happy in their new surroundings which Iceland’s Road and Coastal Administration has called “beautiful.”
