MoD will start destroying all new UFO reports

275x250.jpgThe Ministry of Defence has started destroying all new UFO reports they receive - so they don't have to make them public.

The MoD recently announced that it has closed Britain's official UFO investigation unit including a public hotline.

Until recently all reported UFO sightings were investigated and made public - but now defence officials have introduced a policy of destroying reports within 30 days.

This means they don't have to publish the information in response to freedom of information (FoI) requests.

While the MoD insist the move was brought in because there is "no defence benefit" in logging UFO reports, it has unsurprisingly prompted various conspiracy theories. 
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."
