Space Aliens Cut Their Visits to Britain
- Official figures reveal sharp drop in UFO sightings over our skies

Space Aliens Cut Their Visits to Britain. Copyright LondonNet LimitedALIENS are growing less keen on Britain, according to newly-released government figures that log UFO sightings.

In 1995 128 strange events in the skies over the UK were reported by the public, but by 2006 that figure had dropped to 97. As a comparison, in the same period, human tourism to Britain increased by close to 10 per cent.

London didn’t escape the lame alien invasion. In north London on 5 August 2006, orbs were reported shifting about in odd directions before hightailing it towards outer space, while in nearby Hastings on 17 May, there were reports of an alien staring through the kitchen window of two innocent natives.

“Sometimes UFOs are weather balloons, sometimes they are military jets, sometimes they are optical illusions,” said a killjoy spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Authority, before opening the door marked X-Files slightly with: "But sometimes we just don't know what they are."

The good news for UFO spotters is that from now on the government plan to publish reports of sightings by the following year, instead of the inexplicably secretive practice of waiting 30 years as previously.
