I came across this video from the latter part of last year. It's about a respected UK sports journalist Mike Sewell's sighting of a UFO. He was so freaked out by this he phoned the BBC's Radio 5 station to tell presenter Nicky Campbell what he saw live on air. Campbell's is a sceptic but the video of the incident sounds genuine enough.
If you listen to the video you will hear Mike Sewell say:
"I was probably about 15 or 20 miles from Stansted at 4.15 in the morning and there was this big bright light in the sky descending towards the road.
As it got closer it then banked to the left, and as it banked to the left and went across the countryside I could see underneath it.
It wasn't an aeroplane, and it wasn't a helicopter. Certainly of a kind of - and I dread saying this - disc shape. It had several lights flashing all around it.
Underneath there were at least two large panel lights, soft white lights, and then it just sat or circled a certain area above the field for a few moments.
I was so gobsmacked, I was trying to negotiate the road, which was a small country lane. Eventually I dropped down and lost sight of it but certainly for two or three minutes I saw what, I think, was not a normal aeroplane.'
I was wide awake and I'm of sound mind. I was completely freaked out by it. This was a long way from Stanstead airport - at least 15 miles - and the aircraft was going westerly rather than easterly towards Stansted.
It was not the shape of a normal aircraft it was a big disc, round-shaped craft and it didn't leave.
I watched it for two or three minutes before I eventually lost sight of it. I decided to go back again through the village. It's a very quiet area and I've spoken to someone who knows it very well and they said there's no military installations in that area so I would be intrigued to hear if anybody else saw it."

At the time the reported UFO sighting created a lot of interest. So much so that other people reported their own UFO sightings as well. Here's a few examples:
"In 1974 I and my friends saw a large UFO at about 07:00am, it was bright and sunny when this very long object appeared flying low, it seemed to be following the power lines between three pylons, as it got near we could see that it was as big as a 747, it stopped and hovered at about 60 feet above the ground, and about 50 yards in front of us, it stayed like that for about 2 minutes, then suddenly accelerated upwards at an enormous speed and disapeared from view. What was erie about this object was that NO sound came from it, even when it sped off at a great speed! I phoned the Norwegian air force and told them about this UFO, and two weeks later an officer of the Norwegian air force and a civilian payed me a visit at home. They told me that I had not seen anything, and that I must stop telling people that I had seen anything, but I and my friends had seen it!"

"I saw one fly over the back of our house about 8 years ago late at night, it was really low in the sky, lit up like a christmas tree and made almost no sound, just a sound like the wind, it was a still clear night. It flew off into the distance and two other distant lights flew up to it and off they went. I thought it might be a stealth bomber (there's an RAF base not far away) but this was bigger than any aircraft I've ever seen."

"Saw one of these disc shaped craft 14 years ago in broad daylight in Essex. No doubt It wasn't any conventional blimp, balloon, helicopter or aircraft due to shape and performance. If it is another species, I'm sure they are just researching the planet and our development. There's nothing that we can do about it but it's just fascinating there is something else out there. If it's just a type of experimental craft I'd be blown away. Really would a powerful enough nation produce such a thing to keep knocking out conventional jet aircraft."

"In 1982 I was standing in a field in the Wirral about 1am, having a smoke, while my partner packed away the equipment from a disco in the nearby village hall. I saw exactly what this guy saw and the odd thing was that there was absolutely no sound. One minute this object was far to my left and in seconds it was far to my right, then it just vanished. I was completly sober and have never been able to explain it. At the far end of the field were half a dozen horses and they were standing quietly until this thing appeared and when it did they ran around in circles and made a horrendous baying noise."

"Imagine how freaked out you'd be if you saw one in the flesh....hmm well it happened to me. I'm not mad, crazy or delusional, I dont take drugs, I'm not on prescription medicine either. I saw this thing in my room, it was smallish but crouching, it had no hair at all, on its body or head. It was brownish-grey in colour, age spots on its skin. It had large, yellowish eyes with black pupils. They eyes were rounded though. It had a small nose and a slit like mouth. I distinctly remember it staring at me and pointing at me. Obviously I didn't sit and stare back at it, I ran out the room, totally freaked out. Never seen one in the flesh again although I've had feelings and went outside and saw a craft. Twice it happened. It made no sound, was fast moving, amber light. Absolutely no one believes me about the alien but I swear its all true, I have no reason to make it up."

"Haydock, Lancashire, Friday 13th May 1977, approximately 10.30pm. It was a clear night. I know this for certain, as it was the day I left school. I was stood with quite a few friends on a street corner, when one of the lads said - "Has anyone noticed that bright light in the sky?" We all looked up to see this bright light hovering above us, high in the sky. At first, it was quite still, so the lad who had pointed it out started to get laughed at. He said; "Just watch it for a minute and you'll see what I mean". So, we did. All of a sudden it started to move very slowly, then it would move fast, then it would move in a zigzag, then it would whizz across the sky and stop suddenly, then start all over again. We must have watched this going on for about fifteen minutes, when all of a sudden, it just whizzed off out of sight, the speed of which I have never seen before, or since. Space Ship - Who knows? Unidentified Flying Object - You bet !!! We definitely didn't know what it was !!!"

"My UFO story, for what it's worth, is that my mother phoned me up in great excitement many years ago and told me that her neighbours in our village (in the North East of England) had been awakened in the middle of the night by dazzling blue lights shining into their bedroom windows, and when they looked outside they saw that these lights were coming from a big, disc-shaped UFO which had landed in the farmer's field outside. After sitting there for a while it rose up silently into the air and flew off across the valley. There was a huge round patch left on the grass where it had been sitting. My parents didn't waken, as they had the curtains drawn. But she got the story from a very down-to-earth, no-nonsense lady who said she definitely had seen it. I was furious that I hadn't been there at the time, I'd love to see something like that with my own eyes!"

"These UFOs are very real. At the end of 1999 I watched two of them hovering over the M62 near Brighouse. They were big round/oval lights. After a few minutes they were flying towards the house (heading in the direction of Leeds) so I went outside for a better look. One of them flew right over my head but really slowly. No noise, no wind, no visible infratructure, no winking lights. All I could see was just a HUGE area of soft light. It was so big I couldn't see the perimeter of it. Pictures were in the Yorkshire Post the following day but they didn't show what I saw! When you take a pic of light, that 's all you get. Not the huge noiseless thing the flew so low over my head I could almost have reached it. I wasn't afraid but I want to know what they are and where they come from. It's annoying that Government never comments!!!!!"

Obviously there are lots of people who do not believe in UFOs, aliens and so on. Each to their own opinions but surely all of the reports aren't fictitious. Some probably are but with the sheer weight of numbers some must be true. People have definitely seen something that governments will not admit to.
