Horton-in-Ribblesdale's latest resident?

Superman is to quit Metropolis in a surprise reaction to right-wing anger at his plans to be a global citizen.

The Man of Steel, who originally came from the doomed planet Krypton, enraged right-wingers by attending an anti-government protest in Tehran. He also said he planned to renounce his US citizenship.

"I'm tired of having my actions construed as instruments of US policy," he is said to have lamented.

Republican Mike Huckabee said Superman's decision represented a 'worrying' trend of Americans 'almost apologising for being Americans.'

A source close to the superhero said: "He's, like, so totally pissed at everyone right now. He says he's getting out of Metropolis and maybe going sheep farming in the Yorkshire Dales, England.

"He likes the Theakston's Best Bitter and Black Sheep Ale they have there."
