LONDON -- Britain's military has closed a hotline that took reports of unidentified flying objects, or UFOs.

The Ministry of Defense says that the phone service and an associated e-mail address were taken offline Tuesday.

The military explained Friday that more than 50 years of UFO sightings had not revealed any evidence of alien life or threats to the U.K.

It said that there was "no defense value in investigating UFO reports" and that the money could better be used funding operations in Afghanistan.

The officer who used to deal with the reports has now been reassigned.
