NEWLY released documents on UFOs have revealed sightings in the skies above Cuddington and Hartford, going back more than a decade.

The files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters and Parliamentary questions, covering the years 1995 to 2003.

In one incident, recorded on July 9, 2000, a Hartford resident recorded four minutes of footage on a video camera, along with dialogue picked up from an aircraft travelling south towards Birmingham.

A filed letter to the MoD revealed details of the sighting, which occurred during daylight, and describes the UFO as an unusual-shaped craft that revolved in a regular motion and appeared to have both illuminated and dark sides.

The letter states: “The craft appeared just below cloud level for most of the duration of the filming but entered the lower cloud base, which was estimated at 5,000ft.

“The craft may have been flying over Wilmslow.”

On July 11, 1998, two triangular-shaped objects were spotted flying above the Cuddington area. The triangles were reported to merge into one with a tail, estimated at 100ft long, appearing from the rear side.

A sketch of this sighting, including detailed measurements and the direction in which it was seen to travel, can also be found in the files.

In both cases, the MoD confirmed there were no military aircraft in the area at the time, and that there was no evidence to suggest any foreign breach of air space.
