Another sighting in Leeds of two "black curved crafts flying in formation" was reported in June.

The craft were travelling at speed "before suddenly stopping in mid-air" for four seconds, the report read.

In South Yorkshire a "silver sausage-shaped object" was spotted in Barnsley.

It turned to black before "disappearing", the report said.

During the last year, it is believed there have been almost 200 reports of mysterious floating objects in Great Britain alone.

The Royal Air Force was responsible for handling and recording all reports regarding UFOs until 2009 - due to 'no evidence of a threat'.
