A BAMBER’S Green resident has become the second person in the past month to report the sighting of a UFO near to Stansted Airport.

On Monday July 5, a former police officer – identified only as ‘Nick R’ - said he saw a UFO and then three ‘children-like figures’ disappear from a field close to the flight path of the Essex hub (read the full story at http://www.saffronwaldenreporter.co.uk/news/ufo_and_children_like_figures_seen_close_to_stansted_airport_1_504411).

Now, Malcolm Harvey, a resident of Bamber’s Green near Takeley, has written to us to say that he and his 16-year-old son witnessed an identical object hovering near the airport three weeks ago.

Mr Harvey said: “We were turning off the B1256 (from Dunmow), onto the lane towards Bamber’s Green/Stansted Airport.

“It was 10.30pm and we saw an orange, oval light in the sky above the field; an orange glow emanated from the underneath and it was moving in an easterly direction.

“It immediately caught our attention as being different to what you would expect to see in the sky at night, so I stopped the car and we watched it for a while.

“Its trajectory was not constant, it had up and down motion to it, almost like it was hovering, and there were no other lights on it so it could not have been a plane.

“I turned off the car engine to listen for sound but it was dead quiet, so it wasn’t a helicopter either.

“As it got further away it disappeared into the distance, but it was certainly the most unexplained thing that I have ever witnessed.”
