Police 'Copter Chased UFOs?

Conspiracy theorists jammed the message board of the Evening
Post website after we revealed the Ministry of Defence has
recorded ten UFO sightings in Notts since 1999.

However, the story is perhaps even more sinister than the Post's
suspicious online correspondents were aware.

Details of these 'encounters of the third kind' were released
under the Freedom of Information Act.

They included bright and coloured lights, often in odd geometric

Interestingly, one of the objects was reported to be travelling
at the "speed of an arrow" [about 190mph].

An incident on April 15, 2002 at 3.30am, in Nottingham, is
recorded as "three silver triangular objects in a triangle
formation. Closely followed by the police helicopter".

One might expect the police to have some record of this
incident, since the Helicopter Support Unit logs every call out.
But strangely, the records for 2002 are not available.

According to staff at the unit, the computer programme, which
stored the information, was developed by a member of staff, who
unfortunately suffered a stroke.

Apparently as a result of his illness, the man could not
remember the password.

"All our records for that particular year are on a programme we
no longer have access to," said a spokesman, who perhaps
unsurprisingly in the circumstances, did not want to be named.
