Devil manifests in Hungarian bathroom

Exorcist to scrub clean satanic ceramic

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

A Hungarian couple have been reduced to washing in the downstairs sink after the Lord of the Flies' terrifying visage appeared in their bathroom.

Poor old Laszlo Csrefko, 52, blew a "fortune" doing up the room, but no sooner had he slapped in a new bath, shower and ceramics then Satan decided to pay a visit.

According to the Sun, his missus Andrea was enjoying her first shower in the renovated facility when she spotted Old Nick's face peering out from a tile. She recounted: "I was naked coming out of the shower and I could suddenly see his eyes staring into me. I just screamed and ran."

A shaken Laszlo said: "We can't clean it off and it wasn't there when we put the tiles up. It just appeared overnight and nothing can move it."

He added: "The room is always ice cold no matter how high we turn the heating up and we've just stopped using it because it's too spooky. We wash in the sink downstairs now."

Having failed to shift Satan with bathroom cleaners, the couple will now call in an exorcist. If that doesn't work, they will "seal up the room forever".

Those of you with crucifix and holy water to hand are invited to view the Mephistophelean simulacrum here. ®
