Ministry of Defence files reveal Burntwood alien encounter

alienAn encounter with aliens in Burntwood is among a number of documents released by the Ministry of Defence.

The report reveals how two men claimed aliens had tried to abduct them on May 4, 1995.

The pair said aliens with lemon-shaped heads tried to lure them into their silver spaceship at 11.55pm.

According to the police report, the pair were walking near Fulfen School when they experienced an intense heat and their skin began to glow red.

They then said they saw the saucer-like craft, which was glowing red beneath, in a field.

An alien with a lemon-shaped head then told them:

“We want you, come with us.”

The pair visited Chasetown Police Station to make their statements and a Sergeant confirmed that a red light was visible in the sky with white lights surrounding it.

But the police report adds:

“These could quite easily have been a civil airline.”

Further investigations by Staffordshire Police found no other witnesses to the incident and a local farmer, who was out spraying crops in a field, said he had not seen anything unusual.

    Fulfen school is in Burntwood not Chasetown!
    Was the farmer spraying his crops at 5 to midnight?

    Article amended to reflect the right info – Chasetown was mentioned because I’d been reading the police statement relating to Chasetown Police Station.
