OTTERTON — Skeptics who have dismissed the idea of UFO activity ever lurking in our skies may have to reconsider their belief after a fresh sighting – this time in Otterton.
A man called Spencer, from Hampshire, was on holiday in Ladrum Bay last week and noticed six bright orange lights moving at speed. He reported what he had seen on the Exmouth Journal website. His report makes the third sighting in three months. He said: “I spotted six very bright lights. They appeared over the course of five minutes and moved in a north-to-south direction at high speed over the channel and then faded. “Five of the six followed exactly the same flight path. They were flying above the prevailing cloud clove and at some point they faded slightly.” Plane-spotter Milos Balvim, of Maer Road, reported a similar sighting to Spencer earlier this month.

SHREWSBURY – Whether it’s alien activity or natural phenomena, reports of UFOs have flooded in this summer from across the county. Whatever the explanation, experts agree that the number of suspected flying saucers has hit unusual highs this summer. Philip Hoyle, of the UFO Investigation and Research Unit in Shrewsbury, has enjoyed a busy and exciting summer visiting people who have reported sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects. In an exclusive interview with the County Times, he revealed: “There seems to be a concentration of Orange Sphere reports around the Newtown and the Llansanffraid area, many witnesses are reporting seeing orange spheres in particular over hill farms around Newtown.”
Other witnesses are describing cigar shaped craft with lights or windows along the side. “I met up with Frederick Kershaw, who was driving from Llanfyllin to Llansanffraid when he saw a cigar shaped craft flying very low over his car. “A similar shaped craft was also seen just above tree top level and was described as looking like an illuminated railway carriage in size and sighted just outside Knighton. “What is also very interesting is that farmers in these areas are observing odd lights in the sky at night above their farms and bizarrely discovering the next day their animals dead and mutilated with highly clinical surgical procedures performed on them.”
There may be a connection to these strange animal deaths and the unconventional lights in the sky? If these lights are truly of an extraterrestrial origin why would they be conducting experiments on our livestock? “Kay Jones, who lives on the outskirts of Welshpool saw three spheres appear in succession at 10.45 PM on a Saturday night, that were an incredible shade of vivid green. “The lights seemed to pulsate and were almost in the bedroom with her.” She told me she was too shaken to move for a few minutes, and when she looked at her bedside clock she had lost an hour. “Since that experience Kay has had a persistent headache on one side of her temple, which she is unable to get rid of.” At 11PM, on July 12, Susan Blake, of Bettws Cedewain, told me how she witnessed a large shining bright light approach her house, and as it got closer she could clearly see a disk shaped object with a dome on top. She said, “It landed behind the trees and was totally silent, but definitely not a helicopter.
