WANSTEAD and Woodford is fast getting a reputation for spooky skies after yet ANOTHER apparent UFO sighting.

This time the Guardian was contacted by businessman Simon Brody, 36, who says he saw a mysterious grey object in the sky while he was in his garden playing with his young son.

He said it looked "exactly the same" as the sighting which we reported last week flying near Charlie Brown's roundabout, Woodford Green, and was moving at rapid speeds towards the same area.

Mr Brody said: "I've never seen anything like that at all and I probably never will again.

"I was out in the garden with my little boy and I saw something out of the corner of my eye.

"It just darted across the sky - it was exactly the same as the man in your story described it.

"It was grey and looked quite large, but it was moving too fast to be a plane.

"I ran to look to see if I could see it again but it had disappeared.

"I don't know what it was, but I think it would be naive to say there isn't anything else out there in space."

Paint shop worker Bradley Gross, whose sighting the Guardian reported last week, welcomed the news that he was not the only to have apparently seen the object.

"That's absolutely excellent, I'm very glad because some people have been caning me about it, so now I can say to them it wasn't just me."

"It's quite freaky really" he added.

The apparent sighting is just the latest in a string of reported sightings in western Redbridge.

In February the Ministry of Defence (MoD) urged for calm when there was another sighting near the Winston Churchill statue in Woodford Green, but they have since said they are not investigating further "unless there is evidence of a potential threat."

One MoD Spokeswoman said: "we are scanning the skies all the time for security reasons, so the chances of a member of the public seeing something that we don't know about are remote."
