A NEW witness has broken his 36 year silence to speak out about Britain’s most famous UFO incident.

Steve Longero was told to keep quiet by his superiors following the infamous Rendlesham Forest incident in Suffolk.

But now the retired U.S. Airforce police officer has gone on the record for the first time and said: “I think it was something not from this world.”

The incident – dubbed the British Roswell – took place over three nights between 26 and 28 December, in 1980.

Military personnel from nearby RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge, including the deputy base commander, witnessed strange lights in the forest and hovering above the twin NATO airbases which were on high alert as the Cold War was at its peak.
Steve, who served as a police sergeant in the USAF, was guarding the weapons storage area when the alarms started going off.

He said: “While on duty that night, we had a very sophisticated alarm system and everything just went off.

“And then I could see these lights over the treetops, and I was thinking, what’s going on? Then they started sending people out there and at first it was hard to believe, all these bright lights. It was hard to take in.

"Well from what I remember the lights, fluorescent lights, kind of a glow, like a reddish glow. I remember going out there.”
