UFOs in Britain is one of the most fascinating subjects ever studied by the British Government and now the secret real-life X-Files have been released to the public. “The files include 4,400 pages and cover the work carried out in the final two years of the MoD’s UFO desk, from late 2007 until November 2009,” reported Sky News on June 21, 2013.
According to the video, on June 21, 2013, Britain’s Ministry of Defence revealed a new batch of UFO files for sightings which occurred between 2007 and 2009. The MoD closed its UFO division in 2009, so this is the final release of such files from Britain.
“These are the real-life X-Files. Most UFO sightings had conventional explanations, but a small percentage remained unexplained,” said Nick Pope, who previously worked on Britain’s MoD’s UFO desk.
The reason for Britain closing its UFO desk does not lie in the fact that the British Government has stopped believing in UFOs but in the fact that UFOs do not appear to be a threat to Britain.
“The Government shut down its UFO operations because they served ‘no defence purpose’ and were taking staff away from ‘more valuable defence-related activities’, according to 25 files from the National Archives.”
The final secret UFO files that have been released to the public include UFO sightings reported not only by ufologists but also include “cases where UFOs were seen by police officers, chased by pilots and tracked on radar.”
Other UFO sightings were reported over the Houses of Parliament, Stonehenge and Blackpool Pier.
Among Britain’s secret UFO files from 2007 to 2009 was also a UFO sighting by a school child who said that she had seen some strange lights. She provided Britain’s Ministry of Defence a drawing of an alien waving from a UFO.
Another report documented in the secret UFO files came from someone who called the UFO hotline because the person had been “living with an alien” for some time. One man from Cardiff said that a UFO had abducted his dog, car, and tent while he was camping with friends.
According to an official statement provided by Britain’s Ministry of Defence, local police officers and air traffic controllers can no longer report UFO sightings to the MoD since its UFO desk is closed. “MoD will no longer respond to reported UFO sightings or investigate them.”
However, the reallocation of funds by Britain’s Ministry of Defence away from the UFO desk to other more pressing defense issues does not mean the MoD has a closed mind.
“The Ministry of Defence has no opinion on the existence or otherwise of extra-terrestrial life.”
Nick Pope, who used to work at Britain’s MoD’s UFO desk is hoping that “people have as much fun reading these real-life X-Files as I had working on them.”
“These documents don’t resolve the UFO mystery, but they certainly show how the phenomenon was just as intriguing to the Government as it is to the public.”
