FURTHER information has today emerged detailing Suffolk's links with the extraterrestrial after previously unseen records were made public.

The Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) files, which cover the period between 1987 and 1993, have been transferred from the Ministry of Defence to The National Archives.

And hidden among them include the possible sighting of a UFO hovering over Suffolk in November 1989.

A member of the public reported seeing “one bright yellow/white light with a small red light” near to the A14 junction with the A120.

The UFO was said to be travelling at “great speed”.

The report was taken seriously enough to be investigated by officials at RAF Wattisham, who were unable to explain the sighting.

The probe discovered that none of Wattisham's aircraft were flying at the time, nor were any other flights scheduled for the area. Furthermore, no craft were picked up on radar.

Suspicions were further aroused when it emerged that shortly before the incident, Ipswich had suffered a major power cut.

The report reveals that the sighting was corroborated by another member of the public and even by one of RAF Wattisham's Met Officers.

In a letter to the individual who first reported the incident, an officer from Wattisham wrote: “I have investigated the matter and at the moment I am unable to advise you of the objects you identified.

“Our records show that we had no aircrafts on frequency at the time, nor were the local or approach controllers aware of any traffic in our immediate area.”

Meanwhile, it has also been revealed how a frightened Norwich woman, out walking her dog, claimed a man had identified himself as coming from another planet.

The report was investigated by the MoD's intelligence branch, DI55, whose brief was to follow up credible UFO reports.
