Mothership? A drawing by Roy Shaw of the UFO he saw in Exmouth, Devon. He said it was about 100ft long, with flashing lights. He was at a loss to explain it
A UFO sceptic was left terrified and running away so quickly he twisted his ankle, after seeing a mysterious craft and an otherworldly figure in Exmouth’s aptly-named Phear Park.
Retired engineer Roy Shaw was taking a night-time stroll with his dog, Sydney, when the close encounter happened.
He said: ‘The object was round, about 30ft in diameter and 100ft long, with blue and red flashing lights on its perimeter.
‘It appeared to land at the top end of the park by the bowling green. My dog started to growl when what I can only describe as a white shape came towards us.

‘It was about 4ft high and seemed to be translucent and moved very slowly towards us. I was transfixed because it made a droning noise, which sounded like “my, my”.’
Devon UFO expert Nigel Wright said: ‘This is a close encounter of the third kind – encountering an occupant of a UFO in close proximity to the craft. This is a really important sighting.’
However, Mr Shaw said he remained a sceptic and was at a loss to explain Saturday’s incident.
