UFO unit shut down

The Ministry of Defence has closed its UFO investigation unit, it has been revealed.

A hotline and email address for the public to report strange sights in the skies to the military were shut down on December 1.

The MoD said it had received thousands of reports of UFOs over more than 50 years, but none revealed any evidence of a potential threat to the UK or substantial proof of the existence of extra-terrestrials.

It justified the decision to axe the X Files-style unit by saying there was no "defence value" in investigating the sightings.

The officer who dealt with UFO reports has been moved to another post, saving £44,000 a year.
