UFOs In The UK

Most average UK citizens probably don't realize the fact that the number one hotspot in the entire world for UFO activity is in Scotland, UK - the area known as the Bonny Bridge Triangle, also called the Falkirk Triangle, which has approximately 300 UFO reports coming in each year.

Even more fascinatingly, there are also several other UFO hotspots in the UK and declassified UK government documents show how one UFO had been sighted in 1996 by a man on his way home from having a drink, shooting some kind of laser beam down at a railway track below.

When a police officer arrived at the scene to investigate the incident, the railway track was still smouldering and the officer described the incident as being "rather odd".

Despite the skeptical assumptions amongst most of the UK's general public, the UK has actually been home to some of the most significant UFO events to ever take place, including the now well-publicized Rendlesham Forest/Bentwaters incident.

In 2001, at the Disclosure project conference, Lt. Charles Halt, who had witnessed and reported the incident, came forward to reveal details of the incident which had previously been kept suppressed repeatedly by chief defence ministers, according to a Westminster watchdog.

According to a BBC News report in December 2002, "Parliamentary Ombudsman Anne Abraham said that the MoD had broken open government rules three times in recent months over cases including the Rendlesham Forest UFO scare."

Lt. Charles Halt's testimony, along with now declassified government documents, show how Halt and his men had witnessed a small triangular craft maneuvering through the forest, which shot beams of light at their feet.

Soon after, the "Halt tape" (audio) which was recorded that very night surfaced and became publicly available.

Halt explained at the Disclosure project conference how this came about.

Bob Taylor, 1979

The Livingston Incident

Just thirteen months earlier, the UK had been home to one of the most intriguing UFO cases to ever occur, whereby the official police report stated that the witness had actually been assaulted by an unidentified object.

In 1979 Bob Taylor reported seeing an extraterrestrial spacecraft and the case was officially investigated by the Scottish Lothian and Borders police.

According to Wikipedia, "As of 2007, it was the only recorded incident in which a UFO sighting has been the subject of a criminal investigation in the United Kingdom"

Taylor, who worked for the Livingston Development Corporation, had parked his truck to go and sample some saplings from the forest on foot, along with his dog.

Taylor claims that upon entering a clearing, which was approximately 500 metres away from where he parked his truck, he saw a large spherical object, twenty feet in diameter, hovering above the forest floor.

The object seemed to be built from some kind of metallic material which was transparent in some places but not in others (note that this corroborates Colonel Corso's claims in his book, Dawn Of A New Age).

Taylor claimed it was as though the object was trying to camouflage itself or make itself invisible. The object had a narrow rim which ran around it's circumference with stems topped with propellers. Taylor said that the surface of the object had a rough texture like sandpaper (note that this corroborates Sergeant Peniston's claims, of the Rendelsham Forest incident).

As Robert Taylor approached the object, two similar looking but smaller spheres about three feet in diameter, with appendages, dropped from underneath and started rolling towards him.

The spheres were similar in appearance to landmines and they maneuvered their way round him and attached themselves to his trousers.

Taylor claims that as this point he heard a hissing sound and started choking due to a pungent smell which he believes was some kind of gas being secreted by the objects.

As Taylor found himself being dragged towards the larger object, he fell forwards onto his face and lost consciousness.

When Robert Taylor eventually awoke after the experience, he found that he could not initially speak or get to his feet. He managed to crawl 100 metres before eventually climbing to his feet and staggering the rest of the way back to his truck.

He tried to radio for help but couldn't do so due to not being able to speak and so, attempted to make his way home in the truck.

According to reports, it remains unclear whether Taylor went on to drive his truck into a ditch, or if it wouldn't start and he 'ditched' it though ultimately he ended up walking home.

Robert Taylor was always considered to be a highly respectable, reputable and credible witness and was adamant he was telling the truth about what happened to him, right up until his death in 2007, at the age of 89.

      Thanks for stopping by. There are so many of these incidents, some of them with physical trace evidence, that it's overwhelming.

      My pleasure! I believe there's a lot more to that Bentwaters incident that they're not letting on.
