Pat Regan claims he was nearly blown off his feet in Rufford as he photographed the tornado during a fishing trip.
When he got home he enlarged the picture on his computer and spotted the UFO. Pat told The Sun: “I noticed this weird speck. I blew it up and there it was – a UFO hovering right beside the twister.
“It’s a perfect disc shape and greenish in colour. If it was a little green man he probably took one look at the weather and thought twice about landing!” A Met Office spokesman said: “Tornados occur about 30 times a year in the UK, but it’s the first time I’ve heard of a UFO spotted close to one.” – via weirdpost
