I know the UK is working on a secret drone aircraft at the moment and they have been testing it but i dont think they usually fly it that far inland. its more on the coast.
The story is that the typhoon jets were dispatched to assist a helicopter that had released a distress signal.
I have not got a clue what a distress signal looks like if, indeed, it is a physical thing at all.

Doesn't show much of anything, like all "UFO" shots..
A NUMBER of expats have come forward to claim that a series of low-flying military jets that awoke the Costa del Sol may have been chasing a UFO.
The residents of Benahavis and Estepona – where a trio of fighter jets undertook their mysterious 5am sortie on Easter Sunday – believe that the planes may have been tailing an “alien craft”. While the authorities refused to comment on the incident, the Olive Press has been inundated with calls and emails from concerned residents.
One British reader, who asked to remain anonymous, told the paper this weekend: “It was terrifying. They were clearly tailing this strange-looking craft. “I cannot describe what it was, but it was long and thin and had flashing lights. It was definitely not a plane or helicopter. “It made a very strange sound and moved slowly before suddenly shooting off at top speed.” Her neighbour Alison Woods, who is married to a former RAF engineer, added: “It was a eerily humming sound, nothing I have ever witnessed before. “We have lived on various RAF bases in UK and abroad. It was the most bizarre sound, not easy to explain.” Another revealed that when he had reported the strange goings on to police, they had acted “suspiciously”.
The incident came just days before another mystery incident over Bath, in the UK, where locals claim to have seen a long thin-shaped craft chased by military jets. The Olive Press is now investigating if there could be any links between the two apparent UFO sightings.

Looks like a big old sky penis. If we get invaded by them then it is going to be bad times ahead.
A racehorse owner in the helicopter that mistakenly triggered a hijack response by two Typhoon jets was told they were lucky to be alive. Anthony Knott, 47, of Dorset, was flying home on Thursday. When the helicopter sent a distress signal the jets were scrambled leading to a sonic boom across central England. "The pilot said we were lucky to be alive," said Mr Knott who was told the helicopter survived the turbulence from the jets because it was ex-military. "It was like being in Top Gun or something," he told BBC News. "All of a sudden this plane came from underneath us. The turbulence sucked us round 30 degrees and the pilot said we were lucky to be alive." The helicopter was flying over the Cotswolds near Bath when it was intercepted.
The plane passed by the helicopter two more times communicating with the helicopter pilot before flying away, according to Mr Knott. He said he did not know anything about the emergency signal and had not been able to hear the communication between the two pilots. He added: "Our pilot was just in shock. He was quite angry and when we landed he went off to find out why it had happened."
A spokesman said the frequency was only used when an aircraft was in particular trouble, such as a hijacking. He said the aircraft were already on their way to the helicopter by the time the helicopter pilot realised he was transmitting on the wrong frequency and switched to the correct one.
