The power lines that are blurs are resultant of the resizing of the image. When you get an object that is less than the size of 1 pixel like a really thin power line, photoshop's resizing methods have a tendency to leave a hazy blur to represent the area. The full-size version of this picture likely does not suffer from this visual anomaly. Also, JPEGs attack sharp areas the most as well. Text and well defined areas like power lines would be the first to be screwed up by JPEG compression artifacting. This explains why the power lines are so weird looking.

ok even if it was a fake, what does the council got to gian by forwarding the pic, to the ufo expert and authurities, cos they'd spot the fake in a sec. i saw the news that day the guy that took it was just a council worker doing his job, so what are trying to do by faking a ufo pic? beside i don't think council workers have that skill to fake something like that!
Two Words... FREE PUBLICITY
The image is very clear, i mean the railway-x, but
it's easy to goon around like this re: photoshop etc
and release the image to the press within hrs.
Free publicity is good publicity!
The image is legit' but the saucer is a simple hoax.
He even got the red warning lights at the right
