Description: Whilst on night patrol as Police Officer, my colleague and I saw a large bright cigar shaped light (approx. 200ft long and 40ft in height) hovering approx. 100ft above properties on Hodge Road, near it's jnct. with the A6 Manchester Road Walkden, from a distance of approx. 150yds. The object then moved slowly East for approx. 50yds then turned Southward. We attempted to follow the object by driving along a nearby street towards which we believed the object to be travelling but lost sight of it.

We immediately returned to Little Hulton Police Station and rang Manchester airport, but they had no recorded sightings and had no aircraft within that vicinity. They asked if we wished to report a UFO Sighting but we declined after talking with senior officers and the possible attention that it may cause.
