A BUS driver has been left scratching his head after spotting two mysterious objects soaring in the Suffolk skies.

David Burch was with his son and grandson when they spotted the orange balls over Ufford Park hotel and golf course, near Woodbridge.

That is just a few miles from Rendlesham . . . scene of Britain's most famous UFO incident in 1980.

Mr Burch, who claims to have seen a UFO around 20 years ago while in Dunfermline in Scotland, said his family have been at a loss to explain the mysterious sighting.

The 65-year-old, of Hall Farm Close, Melton, said: “We had only just left home when I saw two orange balls in the sky. I'd never seen anything like it before so my son pulled the car over and stopped. We turned the engine off and there was no sound at all. It was complete silence.

“We all got out and watched them. It's difficult to say what size they were but there were two of them, with one following the other about a quarter of a mile apart. They were moving very, very slowly.

“They were quite low - probably about a mile high in the sky - but then they started to go upwards very fast, there was a little twinkle and they were gone.”

Several UFO enthusiasts have contacted the Evening Star in recent months to report seeing mysterious flying objects in various locations across Suffolk including Ipswich, Languard viewing point in Felixstowe, Somersham and Ixworth.

Mr Burch, who works for First Group, said the latest incident, which happened between 9.15pm and 9.30pm last Saturday, lasted no longer than five minutes.

“It was really amazing,” he said. “If I hadn't have seen it with my own eyes then I wouldn't have believed it.

“We thought at first that they might have been weather or hot air balloons but they wouldn't have gone straight up into the air like that if they were.

“We're all still trying to take it in at the moment because we're still at a loss to explain what it was.”
