Invasion of the bobby snatchers: Police helicopter has close encounter with a UFO
Once you have got past the picture (and I urge you to pause, it is a classic, note someone can't even be arsed to take the tag off the Google Map) you reach the comments...
I have no doubt that what they saw was for real. I just wish the higher authorities would stop pretending that UFOs do not exist. Out of all the galaxies/universe you can't tell me we are the only living planet in existence. I will leave that thought for the rest of the country!

Government in UFO cover-up? Bet I can guess who's paying...
It must have been a traumatic experience for these "hardened professionals". Wait for the compensation claims.

Of course it was a UFO if they didn't know what it was. That's what UFO means Unidentified Flying Object it doesn't mean it's from another planet just that it was unidentified.

Spot on sir, try telling that to the Mail picture department
Obviously aliens know that the "Police Service" are tools of a corrupt government and decided to have a bit of fun!

It's about time some of these events made breaking news rather than being hushed up and us having to ask for files to be released under the freedom of information act. Police Officers would not report a UFO unless they were very sure it was one and something from not around here. If it was another aircraft but they couldn't be sure what type of aircraft, they would have said so. They simply wouldn't risk their careers and the risk of humiliation if they weren't 100% sure if was a UFO! The sooner people realise this sort of thing REALLY happens, the better!

Oh dear, too fast to slap a speeding ticket on it?

Basically proving everything in the Mail to be wrong
