UK's UFO Unit Says It Will Shred Ex-X Files

Sunday, 28 Feb 2010 04:49 PM

Britain's defense ministry says it will shred records of UFO sightings after a huge rise in the number of reports submitted by the public.

The Ministry of Defense said Sunday that new reports will be thrown out after 30 days, rather than kept on file.

It means details of the sightings will be exempt from freedom of information laws that have allowed campaigners to force Britain's government to disclose details of apparent UFO encounters.

The ministry had 634 reports of UFO sightings in 2009, the highest total since 1978 when the public submitted 750.

In December, Britain scrapped a phone line and e-mail account for the public to report details of UFO activity.

Britain's government said the service was a waste of defense resources.
