'More on Conisholme UFO...'

'The story of a wind turbine damaged in mysterious circumstances in northeast England flew round the world last week.

Although it turned out to be fireworks rather than flying saucers that caused the "orange glow" seen around the time the turbines were damaged, the publicity was welcomed by Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, the company which owns the giant turbine.

Twenty years ago Vince was living in an old truck in a field near Nympsfield, a village in the British county of Gloucestershire. Today he is sole owner of Britain's largest privately held electricity company, worth a reported 100 million pounds ($150.7 million).'

'The Conisholme case is one of several UFO stories broken by the Leader in the last six months. In August last year we received numerous reports from local residents who claimed to have seen strange orange lights over the area. Then in October we were visited by a man called Eric Goring from Brinkhill who said he has been witnessing triangular alien craft regularly near his home. Only just last month, we reported on a mysterious explosion and aircraft activity seen over the skies of Mablethorpe.

Nick Pope said: "Looking at the geography of the Louth area, taking in the coast, it is always possible some people could be seeing secret Russian reconnaissance aircraft, perhaps even unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The Russians could have a new secret craft which they are using to probe at our defences so I think we should be looking into this, and the MOD should be involved."

On Louth becoming a hotspot for UFO activity, Mr Pope explained: "Areas of the country can suddenly become hotspots although there is no logical reason for this. Often it is because people don't report what they have seen for fear of ridicule and disbelief, but once somebody gets the ball rolling and the media pick up on it, this makes other people less afraid to come forward."'


'SECURITY guards have sealed off the area where a UFO wrecked a giant wind turbine.

Dog patrols have turned the site into a no-go zone amid fears alien hunters will try to plunder any debris.

Yesterday German scientists did forensic tests to pinpoint what tore one blade off the 290ft turbine and left another useless.

UFO spotters believe an alien spaceship is the most likely cause of the incident in Conisholme, Lincs.

UFO expert Nick Pope said of the UK site: “There may be something they don’t want people to see.”

The Sun told how MoD sources believed a robot stealth bomber undergoing test flights nearby may be behind the mystery.

Nick added: “If a stealth aircraft struck the turbine, it may be made of some material which is itself classified above top secret.”'

Well, those waters have been good and muddied, no? Fireworks, indeed.

Hi Chris. The fireworks line is risible; the fact that it is being used to explain the multitude of sightings- stretching back six months- in and around Conisholme, Louth and East Lindsay is indicative of the time constraints journalists must be under. (That's a nice way of putting it.)

As for the story itself, it's the gift that keeps on giving. I am planning on a return trip to the site to attempt to track down the main protagonists, including John Harrison- he to whom was granted the vision of Cthulu. (Allegedly.)

Personally, I regard this story as the most significant example of contact- in Britain, anyway- for quite some time.
