VIDEO: UFO drops in on Normanton

Three mysterious figures dressed in silver suits were seen in a field in Normanton before taking off in a “dull grey” object shaped like a “Mexican hat.”

The unusual sighting on July 7, 1980 was reported by Joyce Westerman.

Mrs Westerman reported the incident to Pontefract UFO expert Philip Mantle and said that her six children had been playing on the street when they spotted a UFO-like object land in a field near where they were playing.
