The files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters and parliamentary questions covering the years 2000-2005.
DETAILS of a potential 'alien invasion' just off the Bristol Channel were among thousands of close-encounter documents released by the Ministry of
Defence (MoD) today.
The RAF were besieged with calls from the public reporting six small 'flying saucers' in locations which formed a perfect line from the Isle of
Sheppey to the Bristol Channel.
Previously-classified records show that this 'War of the Worlds' incident in 1967 was, for a few hours at least, treated as a potentially real
'alien invasion' of the UK.
Four police forces, bomb disposal units, the army and the MoD's intelligence branch were all mobilised before it emerged the saucers were a
'rag-day' hoax by engineering students from Farnborough Technical College.
Still at work, going to open and read the files when I get home! Enjoy!
