UFO hunter praises Daily Star as government now takes sightings ‘very seriously’

A top flying saucer investigator has praised the Daily Star after the government admitted it takes UFOs "very seriously".
Philip Mantle urged Brits to report alien spaceships to us as ministers grapple with a bombshell Pentagon report that refused to rule out 144 possible ETs.
The US dossier warned UFOs posed "a clear safety of flight issue and may pose a challenge to US national security" last Friday.
And defence minister Baroness Annabel Goldie admitted the UK now takes UFOs "very seriously" when she was quizzed about it on Wednesday.
Her microphone mysteriously seemed to cut out as she told the House of Lords: "The short response is very seriously in relation to addressing threats when these threats are identifiable and can be substantiated."
She added: "We of course are aware of the US assessment. The MoD has no plans to conduct its own report into UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) because in over 50 years no such reporting has indicated the existence of any military threat to the UK."
Phil told the Star: "I would encourage anyone who has a UFO sighting to go to the Daily Star and your local media in the absence of any official channel.
"The more media coverage we get on this subject the better chance we have of persuading our government of changing their mind and setting up some kind of way of making sure UFOs can be reported by Jo Public."
The Pentagon report said all but one of 144 reports made about the phenomena since 2004 remained unexplained – and sensationally did not rule out the possibility that the objects are extra-terrestrial.
The Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force was set up last August to look into the reports by US military of objects seen moving erratically in the sky.
Labour's Lord Croaker told Wednesday's hearing: "Given the subject, it is very reassuring to see the Minister here physically, not beamed in.
"The Pentagon has said that unidentified aerial phenomena are a serious national security threat. Notwithstanding what she has just said, does the Minister agree with the Pentagon’s analysis of the threat from unidentified aerial phenomena?
"Is the UK therefore suffering from a threat similar to that identified by the US? Given that the MoD abandoned its UFO desk in 2009, where are such sightings to be reported and to whom? The truth is out there and, we hope, in the Minister’s answer."

Baroness Goldie replied: "I endeavour to provide veracity to this Chamber on all occasions. Again, the underlying important point is the security of our airspace.
"I have already indicated how we address that potential threat and how we are well sustained and well provided to deal with any such potential threat.
"However, we regard threats as having to exist in the first place and to be substantiated by evidence because we need to know what we are addressing and how best we can address it."
