Flintshire Mayor Calls For Witnesses After Seeing 'Pipe-Like' UFO

Flint's town mayor is seeking witnesses after spotting a
mysterious 'pipe-like' object in the sky.

Flint mayor Terry Renshaw was making lunch at his home in Bagillt
at about 1.30pm on Saturday, when he noticed a strange pipe-like
object flying through the air.

"I thought at first that it was a plane trailing a big streamer
behind it, but then I realised it was something else," he said.

"It looked like a big, flexible aluminium pipe and it was
travelling very fast, with no sound.

"I took a picture of it on my camera and carried on watching it
for a bit and then it disappeared, behind what I thought was a
cloud, but there were no clouds.

"I then looked at the picture on my camera but there was nothing
there =96 just a clear blue sky."

However, the sighting is not the first unusual object to be
spotted in Flintshire's skies in recent months.

During the Christmas and new year period, dozens of residents
reported seeing a series of strange orange lights travelling
quickly across the sky.

So far, no-one has been able to offer a concrete explantion as to
exactly what these objects were.

Following this latest sighting, Cllr Renshaw is looking for
anyone in the area who may have noticed something similar.

He said: "I have contacted the UFO Society to see if it has
received any similar reports, but I have not heard anything from
them yet.

"I would be really interested to know if anyone in Flintshire
spotted the same thing."
