A police helicopter crew has spotted what is described as an unusual aircraft in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The helicopter was above St Athan, which is home to an RAF base and close to Cardiff International Airport.

But three-man crew could not capture any images before the object vanished over the Bristol Channel on 7 June.

South Wales Police said the helicopter did not give chase and described the crew as very experienced. The sighting has been reported for investigation.

A police spokesperson said: "The crew are very experienced and responded in a professional manner in relation to what they saw.

Lmao imagine a helicopter chasing a UFO it would be more like a comedy sketch.
In all seriousness though I'm surprised this made it to the press, what with the MOD involved as they like covering up UFO stories. My guess is it was another aircraft, come on this was near a RAF base and Cardiff International lol.

as the report says, there are lots of different aircraft in the area constantly.

I used to live in somerset, on the coast. I thought I saw a UFO once over the welsh coast, it turned out to be a weather balloon (something I didnt beleive at the time) with a light attached to it so that aircraft going to Cardiff and Bristol airports wouldnt hit it.

It was a UFO...self explanatory really...the couldnt identify it so that makes it a UFO. Doesnt mean it was an alien craft from another planet. (IMHO...they don't exsist)

If it had been a flying sheep then Dutcho or Digi would have been able to identify it.

I believe in UFOs, if we can send "things" into space and mars, am sure other planets can send things to us,
