275x250.jpg We've seen some crazy criminal excuses here at Newslite Towers - like the burglar who told cops he was a trainee locksmith - and here's another great one.

A man in Middlesbrough reportedly told police that aliens had instructed him to go into his mother’s home and steal food to give to the homeless.

A hearing at Teesside Crown Court also heard that John Kirby had smashed into his uncle’s home before stealing aftershave and toiletries … also at the behest of aliens.

29-year-old Kirby - who had previous convictions for burglary - had left fingerprints at the scenes of the two burglaries and representing himself in court entered guilty pleas.

The judge jailed Kirby for 12 months, of which he will serve half. There's no new if the instructing aliens will face any charges.


Footage of a UFO darting across the sky over Seoul in South Korea has divided the internet with some insisting it heralds the arrival of little green men, and others repeatedly shouting "FAKE" at their computers.


The video was apparently recorded by a passenger flying over the city and zooms in and out to get a better view of the spherical object.

Moving at a similar pace to the plane, the object eventually shoots out of shot.

But online critics suggest all is not as it seems and that the UFO has simply been added onto the original footage.


A 'sweet-toothed ghost' has been caught on camera flinging a packet of sweets from a supermarket shelf after closing hours.


CCTV footage shows the moment the item was hurled the IGA store in Adelaide -- despite there being no-one around.

Bosses say they now believe the store is haunted by a sweet-toothed ghost, adding that they think it's pretty cool.

The video has recently become a hit on YouTube… where obviously no-one is calling it a fake.

275x250.jpg Staff at a pub in Birmingham say they are being haunted by the ghost of a former landlord who knocks over glasses and throws beer mats at customers.

Henry Skinner -- who was murdered 116 years ago -- is claimed to haunt the Birmingham city-centre boozer The Trocadero.

Skinner served in the military before running the pub and was well-known in the city and ran a popular boxing academy.

But nowadays he's said to spend his time knocking over glasses, throwing beer mats, moving things around the pub at night and making the money in fruit machines rattle.


This video of a motorist driving along a snowy road in Scotland has gone viral online -- after it was claimed to contain footage of a flying saucer.

The footage is said to have been shot from a camera in Scottish Mountain Rescue vehicle in heavy fog with visibility reduced.

But after a car can be seen driving in the opposite direction, a pair of bright dots appear in the sky.

The lights then zoom across the sky before disappearing into the fog, prompting some  viewers to claim it shows aliens… others insist it's just lens flare.

275x250.jpg The US government has officially responded to calls for them to "acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence here on Earth" -- by saying there isn't one.

Conspiracy theorists had hoped the petitions on the White House website would force officials to declare they'd already made contact with little green men.

But the response states the American government has no proof to support the existence of aliens, UFO landings, abductions, or aliens living among us.

"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race," it reads.

It goes on to say: "There is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public's eye."  But they would say that wouldn't they.


When this man saw a giant object hovering in the night sky he decided to best thing to do was call 999 -- then he realised it was the moon.

Police in Hertfordshire have released embarrassing audio from a recent 999 call from a man who wanted to report seeing a UFO.

He started off by saying the mysterious object -- which wasn't making recognisable engine noises -- was flying above his house with lights blazing and that is was getting closer.

But a couple of minutes later he called again, this time to admit that he'd made a mistake and had been looking at the moon. Oops.



A video of a UFO flying over the M11 in broad daylight - near to where BBC journalist Mike Sewell says he saw one - has become an online hit.

Described by UFO expert Nick Pope as: "One of the most bizarre pieces of UFO footage I've seen in a long time," the video was shot near Stansted Airport in Essex.

The 34-second clip shows a series of bright lights zipping around the cloud-filled sky above the motorway at high speed before vanishing.

All the time the passengers in the car can be heard screaming as thy drive along… that's if you ignore the fact it sound's like it's beed dubbed afterwards and the UFOs look like they were added with a bit computer trickery.

275x250.jpgThe latest batch of UFO files have been released by the Ministry of Defence  - including a sighting in East Dulwich which led to a visit from 'Mork and Mindy'.

It was claimed that after seeing a 'worm-shaped' UFOs 'wriggling around in the sky' over East Dulwich in London in 2003 a woman was visited by an odd duo who came to her door.

The unnamed woman reported to police that the pair - identifying themselves as Mork and Mindy - had been dressed in space suits and dark glasses.

Other reports released today include UFOs spotted by the pilot and passengers of an aircraft over the Channel Islands in 2007 and F-16s scrambled to intercept UFOs over Belgium in 1990.

There are also reports of mysterious lights seen moving over the Pyramid Stage at the 2003 Glastonbury Festival… though even we could probably explain that one.

275x250.jpgA BBC sports reporter says he saw a disc shaped UFO circling above a field as he traveled to work early in the morning.

Mike Sewell was driving to Stansted Airport when he claims he saw the disc-shaped craft zipping over the Hertfordshire countryside at 4.15am.

Speaking on Radio Five Live, he said he was "gobsmacked" when he saw the odd flashing lights just a few hundred yards from the road.

"I saw this big bright light in the sky and what looked like an aircraft, descending towards the road and as it got closer it banked to the left," he said.

"As it banked to the left it went across the countryside, I could see underneath and it wasn't an aeroplane and it wasn't a helicopter. And it was much bigger than a helicopter. It was kind of… I dread saying this… disc-shaped.

275x250.jpg A Millennium Falcon style UFO has been discovered on the bottom of the ocean between Finland and Sweden… maybe… probably not.

But that's exactly what some people are claiming sonar images of a 60ft disc-shaped object, taken by ship-wreck hunters, reveal.

The bizarre discovery was made by a team from Ocean Explorer as they scanned the 300ft deep ocean floor for a sunken wreck containing several cases of expensive champagne.

Lead researcher Peter Lindberg says the round object could is surrounded by scars on the earth which could be where the craft landed and skidded along… slightly more sensibly he also suggests it could be an underwater Stonehenge.

275x250.jpg As far as Newslite is concerned she is no oracle octopus, but a psychic pachyderm called has apparently predicted the winner of the Women’s World Cup.

Nelly, an 18-month-old elephant at Serengeti Park in Germany, made her forecast by
kicking a ball into a net into a net of the team she though would win.

After correctly predicted the winner of every German match in the Women's World Cup, she'd been called in to do her stuff ahead of the final between the USA and Japan.

Sure enough she pelted the ball into the back of the net with a Japanese flag and they went on to win the contest - which obviously proves she's psychic. If you think otherwise you can tell the 1,058 pound beast yourself.

275x250.jpgLeicester City Council has been forced to make the bizarre admission that it has no emergency plan of how to deal with a zombie apocalypse.

After receiving a Freedom of Information request from a "concerned citizen" the local authority had to reveal how they would protect residents from the undead.

The FOI request had asked, "Can you please let us know what provisions you have in place in the event of a zombie invasion?"

It went on to say the request came after the writer had watched several films and become concerned about the level of preparation.

And it looks like they were right to be concerned, because the authority says the undead do not yet appear in their emergency plan. Anyone think they need a zombie awareness officer? 

275x250.jpgIn news which is sure to excite conspiracy theorists, the Australian Department of Defence says its X-Files documents have disappeared.

The odd disappearance of the UFO and alien files came to light after the Sydney Morning Herald made a freedom of information request.

After a two month wait they were apparently told that pretty much all dossiers and details about unidentified flying object sightings could not be retrieved.

The department said they only had one file, called "Report on UFOs/Strange Occurrences and Phenomena in Woomera." all others had been destroyed or gone missing.

So what do you think, is this a government cover up… or have the aliens abducted the files to see what we are saying about them?

275x250.jpg A US man who describes himself as an 'armchair astronomer' claims he's found a strange structure on the surface of the red planet after using the Google Mars.

Though more professional astronomers are yet to be convinced, David Martines has already dubbed his find "Bio-Station Alpha" and claims it's evidence of extraterrestrial life.

Martines says he was scanning Google Mars when he stumbled on the discovery which he says is a 700ft long and 150ft wide cylindrical structure.

Speaking on YouTube - where great astronomers release their findings - Martines said: "It could be a power station or it could be a biological containment or it could be a glorified garage — hope it's not a weapon."


A man claims to have filmed a 'UFO squadron' flying over California in the night sky… cynics say he's merely captured a flock of birds.

YouTube user KevinMC360 - who claims this isn't his first UFO capture - says he saw the UFOs over Oakland, California, last week.

Describing the night-vision footage, Kevin points to three lights moving in a triangular pattern as being the 'UFO squadron' and uses a plane as his point of reference.

And while cynics suggest a host of more mundane explanations, Kevin insists these are the same spacecraft which he filmed around a year ago… which were also dismissed by more cynically-minded viewers.

275x250.jpg Everyone's got a theory abou tArea 51 and the "Roswell incident", and to be honest we though we'd heard them all -- from weather balloons to crashed alien craft and everything in between.

But we'd never heard the one about Russia trying to spark public hysteria in the US, by launching a bizarre craft containing grotesque surgically altered children before.

Anyway, that's the latest theory doing the rounds - courtesy of the new book "Area 51: An Uncensored History of America's Top Secret Military Base" written by investigative journalist Annie Jacobsen.

In it she cites an anonymous source who says Joseph Stalin recruited infamous Nazi doctor Josef Mengele to create "grotesque, child-size aviators" and launch them into US airspace in 1947, in a bid to spark public hysteria… not sow the seed for hundreds of UFO and alien based movies and TV shows.

No, we're almost certain it doesn't. But that hasn't stopped the footage - which claims to show the body of a dead alien - from going viral online.

Uploaded last week, the clip is said to be shot in in Russia's Irkutsk region and shows the mangled remains of an alien lying in the snow.

It's claimed the person filming it went out with their camcorder after villagers saw a series of bizarre pink and blue lights in the sky.

He then found the familiar triangular-faced 'alien' which appears to have suffered a horrific accident, including the loss of one leg.

But while the scene is said to have been investigated by Emergencies Ministry staff, most online commenters are calling fake.

275x250.jpgA NASA astrobiologist claims to have found evidence of alien worms inside meteorites discovered from the depths of space.

Dr Richard Hoover says he has discovered microscopic fossils of worm-like bacteria inside three meteorites which landed on Earth.

In research published in the Journal of Cosmology, he claims this proves that life must be widespread in the universe and that we are not alone.

The fossilised space worms are said to have been found in a rare class of meteorite called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites - of which only nine are known to exist on Earth.

Hoover believes his find suggests life on earth could have been seeded by meteors and comets - critics claim the fossils were contaminated after they landed.

275x250.jpgTheme park bosses say they're been forced to move to location of a new ride… because workers kept seeing ghosts including a headless monk.

Staff at Thorpe Park claim they encountered a series of strange phenomena while constructing their new Storm Surge water ride which started with objects being moved.

But this soon developed into ghostly sightings and bosses decided to appease workers worries by consulting a forensic team and paranormal detection agency.

After investigating, they discovered the site, known as Monk's Walk, was actually an ancient burial ground or settlement and could have been disturbed during construction.

As a result they moved the ride to somewhere a little less spooky… well at least they know where to put the haunted house if they build one.


275x250.jpgThe military in New Zealand have officially released hundreds of previously classified UFO reports, including one about an alien with size 440 shoes.

Dating from 1954 to 2009 the documents which deal with hundreds of UFO and alien reports, have been released under freedom of information laws.

Coming in at around 2,000 pages the document details UFO encounters from members of the public, commercial pilots and military personnel.

While most reports are of the strange lights in the sky variety, others are more interesting like the man who in 1995 claimed he met an alien with size 440 feet.

He said the big-footed alien told him dying humans ascend as hydrogen atoms… he didn't mention where he bought his shoes.

275x250.jpg Researchers at NASA say they've discovered a new form of life which is alien to anything else living on plant Earth.

The bizarre bacteria, catchily called GFAJ-1, was discovered in the toxic waters of Mono Lake in California and is able to thrive on arsenic - and incorporate it into their DNA.

This means the bacteria is radically different to all other life on Earth which is made of six components: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulphur.

Boffins say the new form of "weird life" has huge implications for the search for extraterrestrial life as we now know habitable planets do not need to conform to what we previously thought… that means there could be intelligent life in Birmingham.


275x250.jpg
A team of British scientists will this week begin their search for alien life in the Earth's atmosphere.

Boffins from Cranfield University plan to launch a ballon from Sweden which will carry an array of scientific instruments 20 miles into the sky.

There it will spend five hours collecting samples, hopefully including examples of microscopic alien life -- or non-Earth bacteria and micro-organisms, as the CASS.E researchers call them.

The extreme conditions of the atmosphere, a near vacuum with extreme radiation and freezing -90C temperatures mean that if life can survive there, it would be more likely to also exist on other planets.

It's claimed such a find would also suggest life on Earth originated from somewhere else and arrived on the back of a wayward asteroid… meaning aliens are already here, you.

275x250.jpg
The United Nations have said they will not be appointing an 'alien ambassador' who would be in charge of making contact with extra terrestrials - as has been claimed.

It had been reported that Mazlan Othman - head of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs - was to be appointed an ambassador to greet extraterrestrials if and when they contact.

The story which originated the in Sunday Times, but soon spread around the world, claimed the Malaysian astrophysicist would be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response to alien contact.

However, a UN spokesperson this afternoon told Newslite the story was "nonsense" and insisted there were no current plans to appointment anyone to the role.

Never-mind… we guess this just means any visiting aliens will have to continue asking to be taken to our leader.

275x250.jpgA police force has revealed a catalogue of more than 150 supernatural and paranormal cases which have been reported to them in recent years.

Details of investigations involving ghosts, UFO's, aliens and fairies were released by Devon and Cornwall Police after a Freedom of Information request.

In some examples people have called the police force to deal with spooks in their houses, or even to a field infested with fairies.

However, most of the paranormal reports revolve around UFO sighting, and peaked in 1996 when a variety of strangely shaped spaceships were spotted.

In odd news the 1996 peak also coincided with the release of the movie Independence Day and the popularity of the X Files on TV.

The father behind the infamous 'Balloon Boy' prank now claims he has found proof of alien life on Mars.

Richard Heene has presented his 'evidence' in a seven-minute ranting video which he has posted online.

During the clip Heene, who now introduces himself as a member of the 'Psyience Detectives' reviews various NASA photographs from the Mars lander.

In some he claims to see to see the heads of aliens, which in others he says he can see vehicles, fur, structures and bones.

Or as he so convincingly makes his scientific claim "That's a bone man, Bone!It's got to be a bone."

275x250.jpgSecret files revealed today show that Winston Churchill was accused of ordering a UFO cover-up - because he was worried people would panic.

The latest batch of UFO files released by the National Archives include a letter from the grandson of an RAF officer who was also one of Churchill's bodyguards.

In it he claims his grandfather overheard Churchill talking about aliens with US wartime General Dwight Eisenhower - in particular a UFO shadowing aircraft returning to Britain.

The letter goes on to claim Churchill said the incident needed to be classified because it would "create mass panic among the general population and destroy one's belief in the Church."

In odd news none of the documents have yet revealed whether Churchill really did have a hotline to the TARDIS and Doctor Who.

275x250.jpg Aircraft makers Boeing have revealed a futuristic spy plane called the Phantom Ray, which can cruise at 614mph, can't be tracked by radar and doesn't need a pilot.

While such planes would normally be built to specification for a customer like the US military, Boeing say the Phantom Ray is their "test bed" for new technologies.

The sleek-looking plane - based on a prototype the firm made for the US Air Force - has a 50ft wingspan, measures 36ft long and has a gross weight of 36,500lbs.

Bosses say the unmanned airborne system (UAS) will operate at an altitude of 40,000ft, with initial test flights scheduled for December… prompting countless UFO reports.

275x250.jpgA Russian MP has called for officials to investigate claims by a regional president that he met aliens onboard a spaceship -- in case he revealed any state secrets.

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov of Kalmykia recently told a TV interviewer that in 1997 he was met by aliens at his Moscow apartment and that he spent several hour with them.

He said he'd been falling asleep when he heard someone calling him from his balcony. When he went to look, he was met by human-like aliens in yellow spacesuits.

The aliens then apparently took him onboard their spaceship where chatted to them for hours before being returned home.

But a Russian MP has said that the Kremlin should now investigate the incident because the aliens could have access to state secrets. We think he is missing the point.

Pyramid UFOs filmed over Kremlin (Video)

275x250.jpgA bizarre giant pyramid-shaped UFO has appeared over Moscow's Kremlin where it is said to have hovered for several hours.

Videos of the flying object - which some claim is about a mile wide - have been posted to YouTube where they have been watched by thousands of people.

Some UFO experts claim the clips make compelling viewing and are the closest anyone has come to proving that aliens have visited the earth.

However, more cynically minded theorists suggest it could be an odd shaped hot air balloon or even a hologram.

As the good people of Moscow haven't all run screaming into the night we are tempted to think it may not be an alien craft. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

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? 

Vatican astronomer: Aliens could exist

275x250.jpgThe Vatican's top astronomer has claimed aliens could exist and that this does not conflict with religious beliefs.

Speaking at a Vatican conference on extraterrestrial life Rev. Jose Funes said astrobiology was a valid area of research for the church.

The five-day event had been attended by 30 high-level scientists including astronomers, geologists, biologists and physicists.

Fune concluded the event saying that just because there was no hard evidence of ET didn't mean that aliens don't exist and that people shouldn't believe.

It is a good job he doesn't think "hard evidence" is a prerequisite for belief … otherwise he could be in the wrong job.

NASA photo of green man on Mars

200x175.jpg
(Weird News) NASA have released a photo from mars which appears to show a little green man walking down a hill on the red planet - though sceptics think it could be a rock.

The image was sent back to Earth by Spirit, Nasa's Mars explorer vehicle which landed there four years ago.

While initial inspections didn't highlight anything out of the ordinary, users of  astronomy websites spotted the figure which seems to be a woman with an outstretched arm.
