A bizarre sign that claims three people have been abducted by aliens has popped up in Sedgley.
The large panel, with black stencilled writing, also accuses Dudley Council of not doing enough to stop the ‘abductions’.
It reads: “3 alien abductions here in one week. When are the council going to do something?”
The local authority said it was aware of the mysterious sign, which would be removed.
A council officer contacted by the Daily Star Sunday said: “There is something definitely going on with UFO activity in the West Midlands – but no one would ever go on the record to confirm that. But as for alien abductions in Sedgley – not so sure about that.”
UFO believers reckon the region is the centre of alien activity within the UK.
Dozens of sightings have been reported in the area in recent years and websites have been created so people can log extraterrestrial spots.
Lisa, who lives in Solihull, claims she saw an orange flickering ball in the sky while she was in her front garden.
“My immediate thought was that it looked like a plane on fire, but it clearly wasn’t,” she said.
“It moved far too fast to be a plane – we live near the flight path so we are used to seeing planes. I watched it for probably only a few seconds and saw as it travelled across the sky, not down, reduced in size and then disappeared.”
