The Ministry of Defence stopped recording or analysing UFO reports in 2009, stating that ”in more than 50 years no UFO sighting reported to the department has indicated the existence of any military threat to the UK”.

Two years earlier, at 9.44pm on October 6, there were reports of UFOs sighted in the skies above Droitwich. ”Seven to eight spherical objects” were spotted, the MoD report stated. ”They were moving in a straight line in an easterly direction.”
