Reports of alleged UFO sightings to Devon and Cornwall Police
By Cornish Times
There have been 10 alleged UFO or alien sightings that have been reported to Devon and Cornwall Police in the last three years, a Freedom of Information request has revealed, writes Richard Whitehouse, local democracy reporter.
The police were asked how many 999 or 101 calls the force has received in relation to alleged UFO or alien sightings in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
The results revealed that there were 10 incidents when the caller to the police actually claimed to have seen an alien or a UFO.
But the response from the police said that all but two of the incidents involved individuals with mental health issues and are therefore not indicative of extra-terrestrial sightings.
The other two incidents – in Falmouth and Plymouth in 2016 – also both involve individuals who were recorded as sounding heavily intoxicated, the response said.
