At ten-thirty on Saturday night, the whole population of Over-by-Marsh was standing in the town square. Police officers stopped and got out of their cars but not to arrest anyone. Everyone was looking up into the night sky at five bright lights which seemed to be traveling slowly towards the earth. Tom Lawless was one of the people. ‘We were in the restaurant but ran outside when we heard what was happening. There were four lights and then another one flew across the sky to the others. After an hour or so they started moving away from us so by midnight we couldn’t see them anymore.’ The following morning, local people got up to find that their town was busy again - this time with journalists and TV news reporters!
