TWO RAF Typhoon jets that rocked five counties with their sonic boom were at the centre of a UFO riddle last night.
The scrambled warplanes were seen intercepting a mystery object hovering over Somerset.
Dad-of-three Richard Bird, 38, told how the supersonic jets probed the “strange sock-shaped” entity above his garden in Bath.
He said: “They were having a really good look.”
Fellow local Sean Whyte described the UFO as “white and rocket-shaped”.
Another witness said: “The jets kept circling it. It was very strange.”
The Met Office last night said in the wake of the Typhoons being scrambled on Thursday that the object was NOT a weather balloon. . . .
