UFO Sighting Over Islington

Dozens of mysterious lights were spotted hovering in the sky
above Archway - spreading panic among residents below.

Unidentified flying orange objects stopped traffic and left
residents staring skyward in disbelief at around 5.30pm on

Islington police received four calls within a matter of minutes.

Witness Alix McAlister, 34, a market stall trader from Bredgar
Road, Archway, said: "I just picked up my son from nursery in
Bredgar Road. I had just come out of the door when I noticed
what was going on in the sky.

"There were a group of them - 10 to 15 of them moving together.
My first impression was that they reminded me of a squadron of
aeroplanes in formation. But they didn't have a proper formation
and they were all moving at the same speed.

"I thought for a while that something was happening in the
centre of London. Bombs and planes crossed my mind. But I
realised very quickly that they didn't look like any aircraft
I'd seen before.

"They were coming from the north and moving south. And then they
kind of stopped and they were hovering. There was no sound. They
seemed to fade away and I saw more coming and then they stopped.
It lasted about 10 minutes."

Islington police informed Contact International UFO Research
about the sightings. Soon after another witness contacted the
Oxford-based organisation, which is devoted to solving the
mystery of UFOs, and described what he saw.

A spokesman for Contact International said: "He told me he was
picking his daughter up from school and he saw many people
looking up in the air. Traffic had stopped and people were

"He said he saw between 12 and 15 orange lights travelling
across the sky. Then they would stop and then they went upwards.
