A police officer claimed that he had seen a UFO moving at supersonic speeds when he was off duty driving near the Birmingham airport.
The officer reported that he had seen a ‘light with a bluish tinge’ that ‘pulsed rhythmically’ and zoomed off.
A colleague then called the air traffic control, and they said that nothing had been seen on their systems.
The unnamed officer had this to say: ‘I noticed a light in the sky which was pulsing rhythmically. It was very bright and had a bluish tinge to it,’ the website reported the officer as saying.
‘I thought at first that it was a plane. Then I realized, as it was only a single light, this was not likely to be the case.
‘Besides, I had never seen an aircraft in that part of the sky.’
UFO expert Nick Pope said: ‘This could be the real thing – a UFO in our airspace and military aircraft scrambled to intercept.’
