The British Ministry of Defence has delayed the release of 18 'bombshell' documents by several months.
The files, which are believed to relate to cases of Unidentified Flying Objects over the British Isles, were due to be released as part of a Freedom of Information Act request.
When Lord Black of Brentwood brought the subject up in the House of Lords last month however the MoD admitted that the documents had yet to be handed over due to "additional processing requirements" and stated that they would not be released until either the end of this year or the beginning of the next.
"This massive delay will have conspiracy theorists up in arms," said Nick Pope, a former investigator who once headed up the MoD's UFO desk. "It looks like the MoD is stalling."
"The suspicion will be that there's a bombshell in these files and that the Ministry does not know how to handle it. I can understand why conspiracy theorists will be angry and suspicious."
It isn't clear exactly what is in the files however it is thought that there is at least some information pertaining to the famous Rendlesham Forest incident which took place in 1980.
