I suppose it's worth noting that the MoD statement strictly
speaking does not deny that planes may have been in the area,
only that no planes were "scrambled to investigate". If aicraft
were were already airborne nearby - on exercise, training,
logging aircrew flight hours or enroute between stations, for
example - they could be redirected to investigate but they would
not have been scrambled specifically for that purpose

Similarly, if the event was not construed as a being a UFO
incident by RAF elements involved (for example, if the objects
were identified on the spot or were deployed as part of said
hypothetical exercise) then there would be reason for the
activity to be "reported to this [MoD] office".

A total of eight fighters over the space of half an hour seems a
lot though.
