UFO above Ashford 'fired red laser beam'
A welder says he was stunned when he looked out of his window to see five UFOs fly past and shoot a red laser beam into the ground.
Mr Gisby, 50, of South Stour Avenue, Ashford, was watching television in his bedroom when he noticed the lights at 10.25pm on Saturday.
He said: “I was just lying in bed watching TV and all of a sudden I saw these lights out of the corner of my eye.
"I tried to unlock my phone to film them but the first two had gone too far away.
“I turned around and I saw the other three coming over. There was no noise at all.
"They shot forward and caught up with the other two. They were just moving through the sky above the old Carfax waste paper factory site.
“Then this red beam came down. It happened right at the end when I was filming. I was quite stunned.”
He added: “People have said they could have been Chinese lanterns but they were moving too fast and I’ve never seen lanterns do anything like that.
“The only thing I could think of is that it might be proper UFOs. Years ago I was out with a girl and we saw traffic light things in the sky above Cudworth Road.”
The same set of hovering lights Mr Gisby saw on Saturday were filmed by someone in south Ashford floating upwards from Victoria Park over Ashford International train station.
