Thanks for yet more very interesting info!
“The phenomenon of UFOs is real. I know that there are scientific organisations which study the problem.”
“Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe that unknown flying objects are nonsense.”
Former CIA Director, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, public statement, 1960.

Sonicology, happy reading mate -there's some great stuff in there and the Bacup/Todmorden area of Lancashire appears to be a bit of a hotspot.

That quote could make the front pages in Bacup and Tod. First time either place has been described as a 'hotspot.'
A UFO, given the description of a flying saucer, has been spotted in Lancashire.
Remarkably, it is the 44th occassion that a UFO has been found in the Bacup and Rossendale area since 1977 – the highest number of sightings recorded in the country.
The area is now probably better known to its residents as ‘UFO Valley’

Well it could hardly happen to a nicer guy. We've both been mining his site for new stories for a long time. When I was asking about my (bombed again!) thread exploring the Cyprus crash...he replied very quickly and honestly. It ain't much, but it shows manners.
In this interview, Jerry talks with Gary Heseltine, a police detective in England, who has put together a website and has undertaken an investigation of UFO sightings using official and off duty reports from law enforcement personnel. Heseltine tells Jerry about his experience, when he was a youth, of seeing a UFO that resulted in wide spread power failures in England. Gary relates an example of the reports sent to him by highly trained police officers. Jerry and Gary then engage in a wide ranging discussion of the cover-up by the media and government authorities and what he thinks is really involved in the sightings of UFOs.

Thx for posting OP. I wasn't even aware of the site but there are many interesting stories/sightings on it. S + F
P.S. Sorry that your thread is going to get clogged up by the 14-18 yo that listen to way too much rap and live in the suburbs.
"There are some definite flight type characteristics that are seen now that I would say represent genuine UFOs...ie: instant acceleration; instant stop; vertical acceleration -up into the air and down to the ground; reverses in direction; right angle turns -all in silence -multiple objects sometimes separating and then going back into each other.
They are classic,what I would call,genuine UFO characteristics -things that we can not do in a conventional sense."
British Detective Constable Gary Heseltine - Police UFO reporting organisation, PRUFOS
Gary Heseltine is a detective in the British Transport Police. He has been researching UFOs since he witnessed one when he was aged 15. Hundreds of police officers in the U.K. have reported seeing UFOs, many of them with colleagues and some in broad daylight. As trained eye witnesses police officers have provided a very reliable source of information on UFOs. One slight problem however is that reporting of such incidents is not encouraged by the police force itself. In January 2002 Gary Heseltine launched PRUFOS (Police Reporting of UFO Sightings) database, which is an unoffical national police database of UFO sightings and cases. He also talks about the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident, which is approaching its 30th anniversary.
