Thursday, 10am - UFO sightings reported in the Journal in recent weeks brought memories flooding back for Trevor Rickards.Trevor took this picture on the bridge over the A1 at Gorse Lane in 1982 - and the two white lights in the sky have been a mystery to him ever since.

Trevor, of Prestwick Close, has followed the UFO stories in recent weeks and stumbled across the picture, years after losing it.

He said: "I had slipped the picture into an old English to French dictionary and it fell out when I was moving some books around so I thought I would send it in.

"I have absolutely no idea what it is, it's an absolute mystery to me. When I took the picture there was definitely nothing in the sky.

"When I first saw the picture I showed it to the people at the photographic club but they couldn't explain it either."

David Pepperdine also contacted the Journal with memories of a UFO sighting from years gone by.

He was driving towards Somerby roundabout when something in the sky caught his eye.

He said: "I noticed to my right, a row of very bright lights just above the horizon. The lights moved into an inverted V shape, higher in the sky.

"At the roundabout I turned right and by the time I had reached the High Dyke turn they were getting brighter again and seemed to be travelling towards me before turning away towards the north-west."

Mr Pepperdine cannot remember when he saw the UFO's but hopes readers can help identify the date as the event was marked by a report on Radio Lincolnshire.
