UFO man in Liverpool lights claim


Mobile phone footage of the lights over Merseyside

A Liverpool man claims to have seen several UFOs hovering in the sky around the city and filmed them on his phone.

Vince Pybis said he saw a light above the bushes in Sefton Park and got his phone to film it, by which time six more had appeared.

Callers into BBC Radio Merseyside's also said they saw the lights in the Knotty Ash and Prescot areas.

Merseyside Police said they were not worried and no-one called the control room about the sightings.

But Mr Pybis said: "I'm a sceptic, I didn't believe in UFOs. But until you've actually seen one - well I saw seven - then I thought, they are out there."

Last month declassified government files revealed a letter sent to a secret agent from a man in Wirral claiming he had been in physical and psychic contact with an extra terrestrial called Algar.

He wrote: "I have had a relationship with Algar since 1958 and it continued until 1981 when he was killed by another race of beings."

Sceptics suggest aircraft or unusual weather phenomenon could be behind the sightings .
