In what's obviously straight out of an episode of Torchwood, a UFO was spotted flying over Cardiff earlier this month. Well, Jack did tell us the twenty-first century is when it all changes.

The art department at The Sun were kind enough to whip up this nifty illustration so we could see exactly what happened. The three-man police crew narrowly avoided being hit by the unidentified craft as they were about to land then proceeded to give chase until they were forced to turn around because they were low on fuel. The helicopter is equipped with hi-tech surveillance gear yet the craft was not caught on film. The crew could see the object with their naked-eyes but not with their night-vision goggles.
The South Wales Police gave a statement yesterday saying, "We can confirm the Air Support Unit sighted an unusual aircraft. This was reported to the relevant authorities for their investigation."
My favorite quote comes from Breitbart.com who also ran the story. After explaining the object was "flying-saucer shaped" as reported by The Sun, the police response was apparently, "Err..." Much like the response you'd get from someone who'd just been given an amnesia pill...
