Respected BBC sports journalist Mike Sewell didn’t hold back his feelings of shock and utter disbelief when he openly confessed to millions of Radio Five listeners yesterday that as he drove off to work in the early hours of the morning, he was left ‘totally freaked out” after encountering a UFO hovering above a field.
“I was driving east across country about 15 to 20 miles from Stansted Airport at 4.15 in the morning and I saw a big bright light in the sky descending towards the road and as I got closer it banked to the left.
“As it banked to the left it went cross-country.
“I could see underneath and it wasn’t an aeroplane and it wasn’t a helicopter.
“I dread saying this….
“It had several lights flashing all around it and underneath there were at least two large panel lights, soft white lights underneath.
“And then it just sat or circled a certain area above a field.
“I was so gobsmacked.
“I was trying to keep on the road and eventually lost sight of it after two or three minutes but it was not a normal aircraft.
“It was weird.
“I was totally freaked out”, revealed Mike Sewell.
Leading UFO expert Timothy Good said:
“It is absolutely fascinating.
“I wish I had seen it myself.
“I would assume that a number of other people would have seen this object.
“It might well be extra-terrestrial.”
Mike Sewell’s encounter with the UFO in the dark skies at 4.15 am yesterday morning took place close to the village of Cottered in Hertfordshire.
