Okay this is something that my dad told me about when I was a kid.
In the 1970's in Kirby and nearby area's (rainford etc) of Northwest England - there were strange sightings of 'lights in the sky' , 'spacemen'
and other strange reports of vehicles and watches stopping... Apparantly this phenomena occured over a few months time and there were a few terrified
My dad even told me a small article appeared in a local newspaper.
Anyway - one story stuck in my mind of what was finally dubbed the kirby spaceman. A vehicle with two passengers was driving down a quiet lane when
the car grinded to a halt and then some strange lights flashed through the car windows. The occupants were obviously terrified and became aware of a
'bad feeling', things got worse when a 'silver being' appeared at the side window of the car and peered through...
Then the occupants allegedly came to and several minutes of their life was missing, the two passengers fled the car and ran to a nearby house and
awoke the occupants.
What I'm wondering is if any other of our UK members (or anybody else for that matter has ever heard of this story. Both myself and my dad are trying
to collate some information on this subject... My dad has never been able to find any witnesses (at least anybody who would talk) and has failed to
find which local newspaper had the article.
Any information on this would be greatly received.
Whilst we're on the subject of strange local paranormal beings and such, has anybody heard of the 'zipper men'? These may be just an urban myth but
some locals claim that there was a strange period were people (especially young children) would see strange men with zips running down their body. Not
their clothes, but actually from their necks downwards.... freaky eh?
Like I said any information on either would be received gratefuly.
