28 reports of UFO sightings in Wales

THE Ministry of Defence has investigated 28 official reports of UFO sightings in Wales in the past three years. The close encounters include a black object hovering over Rhyl, a flying disc over Newport and a spinning craft with legs spotted in the skies above the Valleys.
The figures, released under the Freedom of Information Act, show that there were seven sightings in 2002, eight in 2003, four in 2004 and nine so far this year.
An MoD spokesman said it would be a waste of money to investigate the sightings fully, but believed there were "rational explanations" for them. A THIRD of Welsh children with Asbos can't understand the restrictions on their behaviour because they suffer from learning difficulties, it has been claimed. Research by the British Institute for Brain Injured Children (Bibic) suggests 55 of Wales' 166 Asbo holders have mental problems which mean they can't understand. Bibic spokeswoman Pam Knight said, "We have got a situation where a third of these youths might not understand the terms of the Asbos".
