UFO files: Alien abduction or clocks going back?

A night-time glass of milk in his garden and a chunk of gained time resulted in one man believing he had been beamed up by an alien craft.

It was an "unseasonably mild" night in late October 1998 when the man from Barnes, south-west London, could not sleep so took to his garden with the drink.

"After a few moments I heard a distant roar of engines getting louder and louder," he told the British Ministry of Defence.

"Suddenly a huge craft appeared over the house, heading in a westerly direction at speed.

"It was a large cigar-shaped vehicle with large projectiles on each side like wings.

"It seemed to have two very bright lights at the front and a white light flashing round and round underneath.

"I think that there were also coloured lights at the ends of the projectiles but I am not certain - I was too bloody terrified.

"There also seemed to be a line of lights (which I took to be windows) along the side.

"It disappeared into the distance but as it did so it seemed to be getting closer to the ground.

"As you can imagine I felt quite shaken. I thought of reporting it to the police immediately but decided to leave it to the following day. I then returned to bed and surprisingly fell asleep."

He went on to say he had gained "a whole hour".

"I am now beginning to wonder if I was abducted."

The MoD, spotting a potential crank, wrote back saying the clocks had gone back the night before.
