Now UFO investigations will take place in Buckinghamshire

Government investigations into UFO sightings are now taking place at an RAF base in Buckinghamshire.

The Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) researchers look into reported sightings of aliens and alien aircraft.

The team used to work at the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in London, but now its base has moved to HQ Air Command at RAF High Wycombe.

A spokesman for the MoD said: "There will be no alteration to our existing policy relating to UFOs."

He said: "This move is the result of an internal re-organisation within the MoD."
