UK Broad Haven UFO sightings marked 40 years on

There were no alien invasions or tales of abduction, yet a UFO sighting by a group of Pembrokeshire school children remains one of the most famous cases in Wales.

It was 40 years ago when a class of pupils at Broad Haven Primary School said they spotted a UFO in a field near their playground.

It was one of a wave of sightings in the area in 1977 – dubbed the Dyfed Triangle.

David Davies was 10 at the time and heard reports of pupils seeing flying saucers throughout the day.

“I was a natural born sceptic so after the bell rang I decided to go to the area that the children said they had seen it,” he told BBC Wales.

He described seeing a silver “cigar-shaped” craft with a “dome covering the middle third”.

“My sighting only lasted a couple of seconds. It popped up and then went back behind a tree.”

Mr Davies said he did not feel afraid, “more in awe and wonderment”, although he admitted he had “a strange desire to run away”.

None of the teachers believed the children and so the headmaster separated them and got them to draw what they saw. There were slight variations, but what they drew was basically the same.

Mr Davies described the days that followed as a “wild rollercoaster.”

“It went crazy with the media and it was difficult to settle down and actually think about what we had seen.”

Two months later, Rosa Granville, who ran the Haven Fort Hotel in nearby Little Haven, described seeing an object which looked like an “upside-down saucer” and two “faceless humanoid” creatures with pointed heads.

She said so much heat came off it, her “face felt burned”.
