ALMOST 400 sightings of aliens and UFOs are reported to UK police forces in the last three decades, based on shock figures seen by Express.co.uk.
Officers throughout the nation received 146 calls about apparent extra-terrestrial action by concerned residents in 2015. A additional 124 such calls were made to police forces in 2016, with the amount of reported alien and UFO sightings decreasing to 112 last year.The total number of calls received by officials within the three-year interval was 382. But the real figure is very likely to be much higher, as 16 of the UK’s 46 police forces failed to respond to Express.co.uk’s Freedom of Information requests.
“There is enormous under-reporting of UFOs, because witnesses fear being ridiculed or disbelieved.”
“Some folks contact the authorities, some contact army bases, airports or observatories, and others contact civilian UFO research groups or the press.” “After the conclusion of the MoD’s UFO project in 2009, there is no more anyone in government drawing all of this together.”
“This is a great shame, since we are not as likely to solve the UFO mystery without someone trying to collate all of the information and make sense of it.”
Avon and Somerset Police received more calls about alien and UFO activity than any other drive, with officers receiving 124 such reports because 2015. West Yorkshire Police listed the second-highest quantity of alien-related calls, with 34 reports on the last 3 decades.
And North Wales Police said it had been called out to 30 incidents over the identical period of time.
He explained:”Aliens are a cultural archetype — they are a part of our social consciousness.” “They also provide a story in which to understand and solve technological developments and doubts.
“These include ideas connected to the notion that aliens protect the Earth and have prevented wars. In this story-line, these things have coherence and significance.”
