June 21 (ANI): Hundreds of people have come up with UFO sighting claims following recent reports that a British police helicopter crew chased a mystery craft in Cardiff.

Many say that they saw the UFO on the same night when the three-man crew chased it.

One Dawn Williams said that she feared an Independence Day-style alien invasion when she saw an unusual object in the sky above Aberdare Country Park on June 8.

It came over the horizon and was travelling for about a minute and a half before it disappeared, British tabloid The Sun quoted the 45-year-old woman.

It was circular and had a dome on top it looked like a planet with rings. I didnt say anything at the time because I didnt think anyone would believe me, she added.

Cabaret duo Katy Cunnion and Russell Quinn say that a weird light in the sky followed them an hour after the helicopter scare.

It was hovering. At first I thought it was a helicopter, but every time I changed direction it was in the same place. It disappeared, then I got a bit freaked out when the light came back close enough for us to see it was saucer-shaped with lights which flashed from one to another in a chain. It looked like no plane or aircraft I had ever seen, said Katy.

It finally zoomed off like a shooting star after an hour, added Katy.

The description of the UFO coming from Katy was very similar to the one given by the helicopter cops.

David Coggins, an expert who has studied UFOs for about three decades, said: Im told that in the past three months airline pilots have been reporting at least two or three encounters a week with UFOs over the Bristol Channel. Many of them will have rational explanations, but the probability is around 15 to 20 per cent cant be identified.

The Ministry of Defence, which investigates UFO sightings, said it was still awaiting the police report on the helicopter incident. (ANI)

A police helicopter crew has spotted what is described as an unusual aircraft in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The helicopter was above St Athan, which is home to an RAF base and close to Cardiff International Airport.

But three-man crew could not capture any images before the object vanished over the Bristol Channel on 8 June.

South Wales Police said the helicopter did not give chase and described the crew as very experienced. The sighting has been reported for investigation.

The helicopter was hovering in the sky at 0040 BST above the base, waiting to land.

A police spokesperson said: "The crew are very experienced and responded in a professional manner in relation to what they saw.

"In today's skies, there are a wide variety of aircrafts which come in a range of different shapes and sizes and in all probability, this sighting has just confirmed that one of these was in the area at the relevant time," the spokesperson added.

A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said it had heard nothing about the incident.

"But it is certainly not advisable for police helicopters to go chasing what they think are UFOs," the spokesperson said.

Cardiff International Airport said air traffic control provided a service to the police helicopter to ensure it had appropriate air space, including allowing it space to return to RAF St Athan to refuel.

Meanwhile, a Cardiff pensioner says he also saw something "peculiar with lots of flashing lights" on the same day.

George Withrington, of St Mellons, said he reported the sighting to police and was given an incident number.

The ex-RAF glider pilot said he was sitting in his garden reading a book on 8 June when he spotted the object at around 1620hrs.

"I was looking at an aeroplane overhead when I spotted this thing was in the corner of my eye.

"It shifted direction very quickly, in the blink of an eye.

"I looked at it for quite a while, i was watching it for at least 10 minutes. It flew off towards the east, towards Newport."

Author Richard Foxhall, who lives in the Nantlle Valley, Gwynedd, has written a book about his experience of seeing a UFO in 1996.

Mr Foxhall has called for the report into the Vale of Glamorgan sighting to be made open to the public.

"The helicopter crew, who are experienced, saw something which was in the air space around Cardiff International Airport and St Athan air base.

"If this was Heathrow there would be an inquiry," he added.

Mr Foxhall said he saw a low-flying object over Tal-y-Mignedd in Snowdonia over the May bank holiday weekend, 12 years ago.

He was returning home at around 2030 BST and saw an object similar to "nothing he had seen before".

Mr Foxhall contacted all local airports, RAF Valley and checked with the authorities and found no flight records had been logged.
