Police UFO Sightings Database
By Sara Nelson

A database of UFO sightings by police officers has clocked up
more than 200 cases in five years.

Launched by Detective Constable Gary Heseltine, of the British
Transport Police (BTP), the unofficial site has seen around 100
officers added each year to date.

Sightings in the News Shopper region include one in Farnborough
and one in Gravesend.

In October 1993 PC Tony Francis was called to an address in
Gravesend after reports of a UFO from a mother and her son.

The craft was described as changing its shape from that of a
bell to an oval with protruding spikes.

According to the DC Heseltine, a seven-page report on the
sighting was submitted to the Ministry of Defence, which gave no
explanation for the UFO.

Back in April 1978, PC Alan Craggs was called to an address in
Farnborough, following an alleged UFO sighting.

According to the site, PC Craggs described it as: "being 20-30
feet above him with wings like fins on a dolphin."

The craft had allegedly been in the sky for close to an hour
before the officer arrived.

PC Craggs is reported to have said: "I've been in the Air Force,
I know what an aircraft looks like at night."

The site lists a total of 43 new reports of UFOs seen by on-duty
police officers across Britain in the past year, with the
largest number of sightings taking place in West Yorkshire.

DC Heseltine, who works for the BTP in Leeds, said: "After
studying the subject for over thirty years I am totally
convinced that a small proportion of UFO sightings are genuine
and represent an extraterrestrial presence on the earth.

"I urge any officer out there, whether serving or retired to
contact me about their respective UFO experiences.

"Anyone wishing to have their identity witheld can do so safe in
the knowledge that I will never release their details unless
they specifically allow me to."
