A UFO has allegedly been sighted in Bowdon.

A ‘round saucer-like object’ was seen by a resident of Stamford Road for around an hour, between 12am and 1am on Sunday, September 8.

The resident, who does not wish to be named, said: “My bed is parallel to the window and I had a 100 per cent clear view.”

She added that police helicopters have recently been flying over the area, but she was certain what she saw was an entirely separate flying object.
