Ministry of Defence axe UFO 'X Files' bureau 

275x250.jpgIt is a disappearance almost worthy of Mulder and Scully. After almost 60 years investigating the UFO threat over Britain - the MoD 'X Files' bureau has been axed.

Earlier this week the UK Ministry of Defence quietly cut their hotline for members of the public to report UFO sightings.

And it wasn't because no-one was calling - the line has received more than 12,000 UFO and alien reports since it was launched in 1950, including 135 last year.

The reports were all investigated and despite the MoD admitting that five percent could not be explained,  they say they do not think they are worth investigating any more.

So what do you think, is this part of a cover-up, have they already made contact with aliens so no longer need the sighting reported… or have we been watching too many sci-fi movies? 
A message on the Mod website reads: "In over fifty years, no UFO report has revealed any evidence of a potential threat to the United Kingdom.  

"There is no Defence benefit in such investigation and it would be an inappropriate use of defence resources. Furthermore, responding to reported UFO sightings diverts MOD resources from tasks that are relevant to Defence."
