TWINKLING Christmas stars may have been replaced by UFOs over Huddersfield.
Shocked pensioner Malcolm Stapp is adamant he saw a couple of flying saucers in the night sky.
Mr Stapp, 74, of Salendine Nook, said: "It sounds incredible I know, but I couldn't believe what I was seeing."
He had been watching a film on TV and was going to bed at 12.30am on Monday when he saw a bright light in the sky.
He said: "It was stationary over Huddersfield for at least 15 minutes. At one point another appeared travelling north and going very fast - a lot faster than the jets that fly over here. It was certainly not a helicopter or a plane."
He added: "Both UFOs were globular with lots of lights on them.
"I tried to look at the stationary one through binoculars, but it was just a blur of intense lights. I watched it for 15 minutes and it was still there when I went to bed.
"I've never seen anything like it before."
Pc Dave McSween- ey, of Huddersfield police, said they had received no other reports of sightings of UFOs in the early hours of Monday.
