Is this a UFO spotted in the skies above North Devon?

WHAT looks like an Unidentified Flying Object has been spotted above the countryside in North Devon.

Journal photographer Rob Tibbles was looking at photographs he had taken yesterday at Fullabrook wind farm between Barnstaple and Ilfracombe when he spotted a strange object hovering above one of the turbines.

After zooming in on the object to have a closer look, it was still unclear what it could be.

The object appears to be grey in colour, quite large and of an oval shape.

Chivenor search and rescue said they had not had any reported UFO sightings in the area yesterday, however, they were on a training exercise so it may have been them.

    Maybe it's the same UFO back to finish the job ;-) UFO enthusiasts are claiming damage to a Lincolnshire wind farm turbine was caused by a mystery aircraft. The turbine at Conisholme lost one 66ft (20m) blade and another was badly damaged in the early hours of Sunday. County councillor for the area Robert Palmer said he had seen a "round, white light that seemed to be hovering". http://tinyurl.com/po9t68f

    Thank you, Sophie. I see that Fullabrook has been moved back to its rightful place, in Devon.

    Hopefully it is David Cameron's spaceship coming to take him and the rest of his cronies home back to their world... One can hope... can't one?

    This really is a space ship. I know because those tall things with three arms are the passengers that disembarked overnight to see who lives here.

    It's a flying machine carrying a geography teacher to point out to the writer of this article that Fullabrook is in Devon not Cornwall. What else could it be?
