On a very cold and frosty night myself and a schoolfriend were chatting before going our separate ways home. We suddenly got spooked and had the feeling we were being observed and looked up to see a very large shiny metallic triangular object in the sky above our heads. It remained motionless and we just stood there and gawped at it. There was no sound.
After around 20 minutes the object suddenly took off straight upwards at incredible speed and disappeared. We then ran up to the local police station on Hall Lane and the police sargeant behind the desk said something along the lines of 'Oh, have you two seen it as well. I don't know what it is and the phone won't stop ringing with callers reporting the same thing. Be good girls and go straight home now.'
I think it was reported in the local newspaper at the time.
