The Telegraph combs through for some of the weirdest reports of UFOs by the public from formerly confidential files in the National Archive:
- A caller to MoD UFO hotline reports that he has been “living with an alien” in Carlisle for some time.
- A Cardiff man claimed a UFO abducted his dog, car and tent whilst he was camping with friends.
- A Coventry woman saw “two orange balls” hovering in her back garden in July 2008 after her Springer Spaniel “unusually ran back in”. Frightened by what she saw, she locked the door and reported her sighting to the UFO hotline, asking whether she and her pet could be contaminated as a result.
- A man, now living in the Netherlands, asked for the return of a cinefilm he said he had passed to two investigators in 1978, showing a UFO flying over his back garden in Romford. He said he had showed them where the craft had landed, and that the men had taken soil samples.
