Buckhurst Hill: Mystery Over 'UFO' Sighting
By Isabel Jensen

Strange "yellow balls of light" have been reported over
Buckhurst Hill.

Jenny Cooper-Rendu, of Chiltern Way, Woodford Green was
returning from a meeting at Chigwell School at 8.20pm on Friday
(October 5), with her son William, 13, when she noticed the
lights as she drove along Palmerston Road.

She said: "I was concentrating on the road so I didn't notice
anything strange but my son asked me what the lights were and we
pulled over to have a look." advertisement

She described "rows of large yellow lights suspended in the air,
completely silent". She added: "They then all moved off very
quickly in different directions, it lasted for about four
minutes, and lots of people were getting out of their cars to
take a look."

Mrs Cooper-Rendu said she is normally very cynical about UFO-
type sightings but admitted the experience had left her shaken.

"I would describe myself as a sceptic but I really can't explain
what it was I saw, I found it quite frightening. They definitely
weren't fireworks, they were suspended in the air, if they were
helicopters then they were completely silent, I'm not mad, I
just want someone to explain to me what they were."

Previous UFO' sightings reported to the Guardian over the years
have been put down to lit Thai lanterns which can be released
into the night sky with lights which flicker for a while. On one
occasion such lanterns released at a wedding reception sparked
worried calls to Stansted Airport.
