As a major city, Norwich is used to friendly invasions of tourists eager to see its historic sights and sample its culture.
However, it appears the city has a set of very well travelled admirers – who instead of travelling by car, train and coach take a more exotic form of transport to Norwich – flying saucers.
According to top secret UFO reports released to the public today, a UFO was seen hovering over St Saviour’s Church in Magdalen Street by a woman from the Lakenham area, who claimed she had a series of very close encounters with galactic beings.
And also in the 6,700 pages of UFO reports released by the National Archives are documents relating to other UFO sightings linked to Norfolk and Suffolk – a scare at RAF Lakenheath, suspected aliens hovering over the Broads and Great Yarmouth and service personnel from RAF Marham spotting bright white lights in the sky.
But the most startling report is of the St Saviour’s Church sighting which includes a photograph of a spherical object over the building.
The photograph was taken by a woman, whose personal details are blanked out in the report, who also took a picture of an object over her flat.
And in her email to the Ministry of Defence in May 2006, the woman says she had been in contact with the strange craft’s occupants, which she calls greys, since when she was a child.
Her email says: “It is a fallacy for the government to assume that these vehicles aren’t piloted by intelligences. I sensed the craft was like a living organism, but intelligences were inside it (biomechanical.)
