New files reveal UK police UFO investigations

Recently released government files have revealed a spate of UFO police reports over the last few years.
The documents, which were made available through a Freedom of Information request, detail how officers responded to calls from members of the public about UFOs over Lancashire, England.

Three of these - one in which an object was reported over Lytham St Annes in 2014 and two others involving a 'craft' over Pendle Hill in 2015 - were investigated but nothing unusual was found.

An alleged alien abduction was reported in Burnley, again in 2015, as well as two UFOs over Fleetwood. UFOs were also witnessed over Buckshaw Village and Bottle the year before.

Despite efforts to investigate these sightings however officers came up empty each time.

"With any call received into the police force control room the operator assesses each and identifies any risk/threat/harm and the operator provides the appropriate response to this, which may include deploying an officer," said a police spokesman.

"Sometimes these calls are not what they may seem so a potential UFO call could be a suspicious light or suspicious movement that could mean any number of things and we would assess and deploy officers if required, or there could be a concern for the caller's welfare."

Because they have found a way of entering our atmosphere with out being detected and they have non detectable spacecrafts specially designed for flying over our lands and they wearclocks which make them invisible when they walk around Walmart.

That was joke. The sightings? you mean planes, clouds and natural phenomena`s? Here is a classic example as to how people can react : "It was so strange," said Smarkusky. "I was like, 'Oh, my God! It's an alien abduction!' I don't know. It was crazy!" https://www.aol.com/article/news/2017/02/02/rare-phenomenon-lights-up-the-sky/21705970/

There is also the issue of people having hallucinations and delusions due to medications or biological brain issues such Parkinsons, schizophrenia or even extreme sleep disorders. Regardless, it is encouraging that the authorities do indeed follow up on the observations.

I can't believe that aliens have overcome the light barrier, travelling millionsof miles, taking god knows how long to get to a small planet that they have somehow discovered has life on it, among the billions of other planets in this wide Universe, just to stick a probe up mybackside! Other life exists, but the distances involved in interstellar travel effectively isolate us.

You can't talk about the British police and UFO's without mentioned Alan Godfrey. Who between June and November was involved in two of the UK's most famous UFO cases. The first was June the 11th when he discovered the body of Zigmund Adamski (no relation as far as I know to George, if you know what I mean by that you're showing your age) on top of a coal tip. The second, in November, was when he was himself was abducted, by a bearded alien called Jake, complete with dog, alien dog, in diamond shaped fully carpeted UFO.Surprisingly some of these details have been dropped in the re-telling....
