Early one Monday evening, Douglas Haig Hughes, aged 68, from Queen's Road in Llandudno Junction, an ex-RAF gunner of five years in World War Two, was strolling along Ffordd Maelgwyn with his wife, Catherine. They then saw a grey cylinder-shaped object in the sky.

Douglas said: 'A cylinder-shaped object approached from the Glan Conwy area about 600 ft up and proceeded towards Llandudno. It was massive in diameter. I could see it with my naked eyes. It appeared at first to be moving at about 45 to 55 miles per hour. Then it slowed down and flashed a bright red light, like an infra-red light, from the window of the cylinder onto us. We didn't feel anything. When the light went out, it travelled on towards Llandudno. It was definitely not from this earth. We have been trying to get an aircraft for years and years that doesn't make a noise. There was no noise at all with this. I used to be very sceptical about such things, but what I saw on Monday convinced me beyond doubt that there is life on another plant.'

A spokesman for RAF Valley, Anglesey, said: 'We haven't been flying any planes over the last three days.'
