British UFO inquiry called-for after multiple incidents witnessed by police, military, and public (reports, photos and videos)

Alien army

A SHAKEN soldier told last night how he saw THIRTEEN UFOs spinning in the skies above his military barracks.

Corporal Mark Proctor was among three squaddies who spotted the objects while out on night patrol.

He filmed them on his mobile phone and reported the close encounter to Army top brass.

Ministry of Defence experts were studying his report and video yesterday — after ordering Mark and his pals NOT to say anything else about the incident.

The sighting, at Tern Hill barracks near Market Drayton, Shrops, came two hours before helicopter police officers reported an encounter with a huge craft 80 miles away near Cardiff.

And three hours before a couple claimed they were followed by a strange light in the sky along the A5 near Shrewsbury.

Yesterday further mind-boggling evidence emerged as dog walker Bonnie Lewis, 29, told how she filmed seven UFOs at Bromsgrove, Worcs, last Friday.

Cpl Proctor, 38, of the 1st Battalion Irish Regiment, recalled how he saw the amazing “craft” just after 11pm on Saturday, June 7.

He said: “I was on duty in the guard room when the other boys outside began shouting. I went out to see what the commotion was about and could see thirteen craft in the skies.

“They were zig-zagging, but I filmed two before they disappeared. They were like rotating cubes with multiple colours.

“I made a full report to my commanding officers and gave them my footage. The other lads were as amazed by it as I was.”

A 19-year-old private on patrol said he also saw the “fleet”.

The soldier, who asked not to be named, said: “I saw these things flying in the sky and I told my guard commander.

“There were about 30 lights passing over for a few minutes, very high but not at a great speed. They were bright red. Another soldier saw them too.”

An MoD spokesman said: “We deal with any UFO sightings to see if there was a military threat.”

The Sun told last week how helicopter cops were confronted by an object as they attempted to land at their base near Cardiff the same night.

Cabaret duo Katy Cunnion and Russell Quinn claimed they were pursued by the light in the sky for nearly an hour at 1am the following morning.

And last night Bonnie told of seeing cylinder-shaped craft.

She said: “They weren’t from this world. They made no sound and had flashing dots inside.”

Bromsgrove incident

BONNIE Lewis is walking her dog last Friday night when these objects — see pic, above — appear in the sky overhead.

The 29-year-old, who is out with boyfriend Colin Middlemore, films the bizarre cylinders on her mobile phone.

Bonnie, of Tamworth, Staffs, says: “I ignored them, thinking they were satellites.

“But when I looked closer it was clear they weren’t. I’m not into sci-fi, but they weren’t from this planet.”

The MoD incident

SOLDIERS on night patrol are stunned to see UFOs hovering in formation above their Army base.

One squaddie, Cpl Mark Proctor, captures this eerie image on his phone and sends it to MoD chiefs.

Two more colleagues also spot the startling “fleet” above Shropshire’s Tern Hill barracks. Just hours later, three South Wales helicopter police officers watch in awe as a huge object rises from the ground to meet them as they land near Cardiff.

The crew log the incident with their superiors. Less than an hour later, two cabaret performers report a strange light in the sky near Shrewsbury.

Expert: Official inquiry is vitalBy JOHN COLES and ANDREW PARKER

UFO expert Nick Pope studied The Sun’s amazing footage last night and said: “Now there HAS to be an official inquiry.”

Nick, who spent three years as official UFO investigator at the Ministry of Defence, said after viewing film shot by soldiers in Shropshire: “The MoD and Civil Aviation Authority need to look at this.

“They need to interview witnesses, analyse the film and check both civil and military radar to see if any unusual activity was logged.

“An important factor is that this was shot from a military base — and the military tend to make good witnesses.

“This object seems to be pulsing through virtually the entire spectrum and that’s unusual. It’s not something an ordinary aircraft or satellite would do, and it’s too slow to be a meteor or a shooting star.”

Nick said the mystery craft filmed in Bromsgrove appeared to be hundreds of metres wide, and could pose a serious threat to national security.

He said: “The first thing you see is four lights in a symmetrical shape — that’s quite a coincidence if they are separate objects.

“If they were balloons or Chinese lanterns, it’s highly unlikely they’d form a shape like that. One option is that we’re actually seeing lights attached to the underside of a vast craft.”

Nick, who spent 21 years working in Whitehall, added: “After the near-miss with the police helicopter, the time has come for a proper inquiry — not least because of flight safety issues.”
