Closest Rival to Roswell—In The UK?

Clyde coast town is new UFO hot spot

The Evening Times

FORGET Bonnybridge - the best place to spot UFOs is in Ayrshire. West Kilbride has topped the list for UFO sightings in the UK last year. Ministry of Defence files, released under the Freedom of Information Act, showed there were 12 reports of "yellow spheres" flying alone or in groups. The Clyde coast town displaces Bonnybridge, near Falkirk, as Scotland's flying saucer capital and closest rival to Roswell in New Mexico - site of an alleged spacecraft crash in 1947.

And it beats second-placed Wellingborough in Northamptonshire, where four reports of UFOs were logged. Hamilton and Dumfries and Galloway were also included in the list, each with two reported sightings. However, many West Kilbride residents today laughed off suggestions the village was a "hotspot" for flying saucers. One resident said: "I have lived here since birth and I've never seen or even heard of any sightings."
