A student prank led to British Army and intelligence units being mobilised for fear that aliens were mounting an invasion of England, documents released today show.

That is the tip of the iceberg. Apparently the Rendlesham Forest files were missing from the UFO data dump, made by the MoD of England.
Intelligence papers on a reported UFO sighting known as the "Rendlesham incident" have gone missing, files from the National Archives reveal.
The missing files relate to a report of mysterious lights from US servicemen at RAF Woodbridge in Suffolk in 1980.
The disappearance came to light with the release of 8,000 previously classified documents on UFOs.
Officials found a "huge" gap where defence intelligence files relating to the case should be, the papers show.

Well, if anyone asks the question, "if aliens are real then why haven't they made formal contact?", they need look no further than this story for their answer. IMO this is exactly how our governments would respond to an extraterrestrial landing.
