WATCH: Garda car chases 'UFO' down a street in Wexford

Shoppers in Gorey, Ireland had a close encounter of sorts when a flying saucer art installation drove through town.

The 10ft (3m) alien craft toured the Main Street of Gorey in Co Wexford with a Garda escort last Friday (July 29) as its designer tried to drum up interest in a local youth and arts festival.

Mature student Ali Kemal Ali, originally from Islington, north London, roped in the police for a low-speed blue-light chase through the town as he treated locals to the bizarre sight of his extraterrestrial craft.
