North of England dubbed UFO hotspot

First published in News

FOOTAGE of a UFO in North Yorkshire has led to the north of England being dubbed the world’s leading hotspot for strange sightings in the sky.

The pictures of the mysterious object were snapped in Osgodby, near Scarborough, on Sunday evening and follow a recent surge of spooky sightings in the region.

Reports of UFOs have also come from Whitley and Hemingbrough, near Selby, as well as in Harrogate, with the latest footage being sent to a national newspaper by Paul Sinclair after his son-in-law captured it on camera.

He said: “It really looks like a flying saucer.

“Crowds of people saw it. There’s definitely something happening here.

“There appeared to be two objects, one with a hooked tail, the other disc-shaped.”

Ex-Ministry of Defence UFO expert Nick Pope said: “At the moment, the north of England seems to be having more than its fair share.

“Arizona has been famous for lots of sightings, but it seems the north is now overtaking it.”

I don’t know what all the fuss is about with these things.
I was over in Ireland last year and had an encounter with one of these flying saucers. Was building a wall down the Garvachy road and right in the middle of my bloody tea break a sodding great UFO lands right in the middle of the road. Straight away before I could do anything my mate Mick who’s the head of the local resident’s association goes storming over to this little orange bloke who’s got out of it. “Who in god’s name are you?” demands Mick. “I’m a Martian” it says. Well Mick told it straight I can tell you “I don’t give a f*** who you are! You’re not a marching down here” .With that it flew off and I finished my tea in peace.

I saw a cartoon of two cyclists looking at a bike-shaped crop circle. One was saying to t'other..."Do you think they're trying to tell us something?"

A flying saucer was low on fuel, so it landed near a petrol station. On its side were the letters "UFO". The petrol station attendant was stunned, but his curiosity got the best of him. "Does that stand for Unidentified Flying Object?" he asked. "No," one of the other-worldly travelers responds. "It stands for' Unleaded Fuel Only'."

There are a higher number of cannabis farms in the North of England, mental institutions and 'UFO' sightings than elsewhere in the UK: discuss. New general studies A-level question there for free.

Don't let York Council know we're a hotspot for UFO's or they'll start painting special lines on the roads to make travelling easier.
I'd feel sorry for the aliens when they ask to be taken to the leader of the Council.....ohh the shame!

you can joke as much as you like on here but noone will be laughing in September 2012 when all will revealed about alien existence to the general public.

Sadly they will be too busy watching the X Factor to comprehend that life for all of us will never be the same again until it is too late.

I saw a cartoon of two cyclists looking at a bike-shaped crop circle. One was saying to t'other..."Do you think they're trying to tell us something?"

It is without doubt a warning about the environmental damage being caused in the centre with your fume belching congestion causing open top bus.

Please justify your involvement with it in view of all the twaddle you spout about congestion and pollution from car exhausts.
