UFO spotted in Devon (photo)
Gary McDermott snapped the glowing red object, with bright flashing lights, after stopping his car to photograph a low-flying helicopter in Plymouth. The disc-shaped UFO flashed across the sky – just as he was taking the picture – before it disappeared into the night at 9pm on Sunday.
Mr McDermott, who was working night shifts on the city’s famous Royal Albert Bridge, said: “I just couldn’t believe what I had just seen. It must have been a UFO – and I cannot believe I am saying that because I don’t believe in them usually. I am always sceptical. But this was definitely not a normal aircraft. It was red, the shape they say UFO aircraft is, and had two bright lights coming out of it. It came into shot just as I took the picture – then as soon as I said to my mate ‘look what I have just seen’, it disappeared. Apparently there have been a few other similar sightings across Britain in recent weeks.”
On January 6 two mysterious bright lights were spotted floating over Chatham in Kent. Less than a week later four similar lights were seen over Essex – but none were as clear as Gary’s Devon snap. Devon and Cornwall Police said they had not been informed of any reports of UFO sightings in the area.
