Case File Information

Police have confirmed they have received a report that a UFO was spotted in the skies above Berkshire.

 

Thames Valley Police were contacted by a concerned man who spotted the ‘flying saucer’ hovering above Chieveley services at junction 13 of the M4.

 

Reading Police spokesman Adam Fisher, when contacted by the Evening Post, confirmed officers had been told about the X-Files-style object.

 

He said: “We were called at 8.40am on Monday, June 30, by a man from London who reported seeing a UFO over the Chieveley area that morning. His details have been passed on to a body that specialises in that field.”

 

This is not the first time such objects have been glimpsed over the motorway. An official Ministry of Defence (MoD) report revealed in February 2007 a UFO was sighted over the Swindon section of the M4.

 

The report said: “An object fell from the sky. It had like a green halo around it. Was very bright.”

 

In the past, according to figures released by the MoD, flying saucers have also been glimpsed over Woodley, Arborfield and Reading.

 

Bizarrely, nearby Wokingham appears to be something of a hotbed for UFO sightings. In the past 10 years there have been numerous sightings of UFOs in the skies above the town.

 

Michael Soper, who is in his 60s, has been investigating flying saucers for years with the group, Contact International UFO Research.

 

Mr Soper, who lives in Oxfordshire and in the past believes he has been abducted by aliens, said: “This latest sighting was phoned through by Thames Valley Police. A person said they saw a stubby winged object with an enormously bright green light going smoothly, effortlessly, across the sky.

 

“We were interested the police would phone it through to us.

 

“On this occasion they were very helpful.

 

“They have changed their attitude to UFO sightings.

 

“It is unusual to see a UFO this bright and in daylight. There is no doubt whatever it was a UFO.”

 

Mr Soper, talking generally about UFOs in Reading, said Caversham was an alien hotspot.

 

“We have had a lot of things happening north of Reading,” he said. “People have repeatedly mentioned pearl-like objects above the skies in the Caversham area.”

 

However, some people have cast doubt on Mr Soper’s claims, suggesting flying objects are nothing more than Chinese lanterns, aeroplanes or hot air balloons.

 

People who have spotted a UFO can contact Mr Soper on fc@accf.fastnet.co.uk or if you have seen one over Reading, call reporter Anna Roberts with your story on (0118) 918 3063.
