Plane spotter 'saw UFO darting to and fro' in Wrose

A self-confessed UFO sceptic believes he saw "something not of this planet" when he stepped out of his Wrose home yesterday.

James Bacon had been checking a flight radar website and popped outside to see if a flight from Helsinki to Manchester was passing over his house at about 9.15am.

Instead, a white object that was darting to and fro caught his eye.

"It was absolutely amazing," said the 59-year-old, of Haslam Grove. "At first I dismissed it as a bird. But it was the speed and the way it was flying that was a concern to me.

"The way it was moving around, it wasn't a plane or a helicopter - it was darting back and forth. It was shooting around.

"It was like a beautiful speed - my head was going from left to right."

Mr Bacon, who used to work as a security guard at Leeds Bradford Airport, said he was transfixed by the object by three minutes before it disappeared behind a cloud and never reappeared.

Both the Ministry of Defence and the Civil Aviation Authority said they had received no other reports of strange sightings in the area.

Obvious question being overlooked...Why would a super advanced extra terrestrial civilisation fly 500 light years to Wrose?

I see a white light when I start with a migraine. Perhaps it was that.
