Quote:Footage of two fighter jets chasing what appears to be a UFO has emerged.
The 30-second clip, thought to be shot from a West Midlands service station park, reveals the saucer-shaped craft zipping over the M5, with the two jets in its wake.
Former Ministry of Defence UFO expert Nick Pope told The Sun: ‘This is one of the best videos I’ve seen.
Mystery: The saucer-shaped object is seen hovering in the sky above HGVs on the M5
Pursuit: Two military jets arrive on the scene - hot on the trail of the mystery object
The real thing? The orb hangs in the sky, prompting UFO expert Nick Pope to claim it is one of the best sightings he has ever seen
‘It could be a new drone – that might explain the military jets.
‘But you don’t normally test-fly secret projects in daylight. Alternatively, this could be the real thing – a UFO in our airspace and military aircraft scrambled to intercept, probably due to it being tracked on radar.’
The MOD confirmed it would dispatch fighter jets to combat any air threat but would not comment on the footage, which was shot by an unidentified cameraman.
