Newly declassified documents suggest that authorities knew all about the Broad Haven Triangle mystery.
One of the best known UFO incidents in the UK, the Broad Haven sightings began in 1977 when hotel owner Rosa Granville was awoken in the early hours by a strange noise and saw a series of peculiar flashing lights through her window. When she looked out she observed what she described as an "upside-down saucer" in a nearby field and two "faceless humanoids" on the ground next to it.

A similar sighting was reported a short time later at a local primary school. A total of 14 children along with their head teacher witnessed what was described as a "yellow cigar-shaped craft" landing nearby and saw a strange figure dressed in silver clothing emerge from it.

About a week later the same object was seen again by a group of teachers at the same school.

No satisfactory explanation for these events was ever found but now, almost four decades later, a newly declassified MoD document has revealed that at the time of these sightings a number of high-ranking officials had carried out a discreet investigation in to the phenomenon.
"This bombshell document shows how the MoDís UFO project asked the RAF Police to conduct a secret investigation into these mysterious events, while Parliament, the media and the public were being told the subject was of no defence significance," said former MoD UFO investigator Nick Pope.

The revelations have also prompted Tory peer Lord Black of Brentwood to call for the Ministry of Defense to fully disclose its investigations and findings with regard to the UFO phenomenon.

"A number of recently released MoD files leave little doubt that a small number of sightings of aerial phenomena - particularly by military personnel, pilots and air traffic controllers - remain unexplained and unidentified," he said.

"There needs to be further examination of these issues in the hope of learning something new."

It never surprises me if a government "investigates" UFO cases. I'm interested in what the investigation concluded. In this case, nothing was ever released, probably because nothing of significance was found. It's been 38 years since 1977, and we still have no definite proof of visitation. That alone tells me that there's no there there in this case.

Interestingly, there is some evidence that there may be a correlation between sightings and science fiction movies and television. In the 1976-1977 we saw the hype and release of such classics as The Man Who Fell to Earth, Star Wars, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Whats so special about this case? It's no different than any other investigated 'sighting'. Nothing every comes from it, no proof!

There's usually one of two interrelated narratives being pushed when these stories are reported widely amongst the ETH community - the government knows/believes like we do, therefore we're not nuts, and/or it's a conspiracy to cover up the truth, why else would the government investigate and then announce nothing?

Planet of the apes was hot back in 1976
