Attachments : Someone sent me this today… www.mywelshpool.co.u… Did UFO cause last night’s traffic chaos? – created on 29/09/2011 Mywelshpool has been contacted by a stunned resident and a motorist convinced that an unidentified flying object was spotted shortly before and after a tree fell across the busy main road between Trewern and Middletown last night (Wednesday). One motorist, who asked not to be named, was breathless as she relayed her experience of seeing the “light in the sky” as she travelled from Welshpool towards the border at around 8.30pm. And another resident close to Halfway House is convinced that she saw “something” hover in the sky at around the same time. The bizarre sightings come around the time that the tree fell across the A458 without a breath of wind last night, causing the road to be closed for over an hour and forcing traffic to be re-routed. Firefighters were called to the scene at 8.38pm to clear the tree which snapped a telegraph pole in half and damaged cables (pictured). The motorist said: “I was travelling along the road from Welshpool and before we got to Middletown we were aware of a light moving above us which seemed very strange. We are sure the car in front was aware of it too because it was breaking a lot and driving slowly. “My son’s girlfriend was driving a few cars behind so we rang to see whether she had seen it and were shocked when she had seen it and a tree had fallen across the road. She was stuck for some time.” The motorist said the light continued to follow them as they drove through the border villages and the story matches a similar sighting of an unexplained light by the resident who told us that she saw it above her house for “ages”. “It was like something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” she said. Did you see anything last night in the Trewern area that was out of the ordinary? If so, get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org…. The sightings appear to have happened around 8.30pm.
