DO aliens really exist? This question has caused debate and controversy among humans for centuries. From Roswell to Suffolk's Rendlesham Forest, these are the sightings which UFO hunters have hailed as proof of extra-terrestrial life. How many alien and UFO sightings have there been? The number of UFO sightings is currently flying at an all-time high, according to data cruncher and blogger Sam Monfort. The alien expert reckons there have been more than 100,000 recorded UFO sightings in the past 100-plus years. And Sam is far from the only believer on our planet. From an "alien autopsy" video dating back to 1995 to a video of fighter jets apparently chasing a UFO over the M5, there are hundreds of videos which people have claimed to be proof of alien life. There's even a clip of a UFO supposedly attacking a Taliban compound, as well as 'sightings' in Peckham and Warminster. Most of the videos have been debunked by experts.

A MYSTERIOUS three-fingered “alien mummy” discovered in Peru could actually be a new species of human, a researcher has claimed. New DNA and carbon dating tests on one of several strange mummies dug up by grave robbers in Nazca, Peru, reveal she could be 1,800 years old and was 98.5 per cent primate - similar to humans - and 1.5% unknown. British-based researcher and documentary maker Steve Mera managed to gain access to the bodies in Peru where he took several samples and sent them for DNA testing. Now he believes the bombshell findings could “alter our history books forever”. Following his investigation, Steve believes the other bodies - which some claimed were the mummies of extra terrestrial beings - have been faked using animal bones and skin. However he says test results point to one of the bodies “Maria” - a three fingered female with an elongated head - may actually be a previously unknown species of human. Steve, 51, said: "We can confirm … [Read more...] about Three-fingered ‘alien mummy’ dug up in Peru could be new species of human, DNA test suggests
Launching its annual report for 2017 director of Women’s Aid Margaret Martin said 19,385 disclosures of abuse were made to it, 3,552 of which related to children. Ms Martin said: “Separation has long been identified as a risk factor for repeated and escalated domestic violence and femicide.” She pointed out that 28pc of contacts Women’s Aid received last year were from women who were being abused by their ex-boyfriend, ex-partner or ex-husband. “Women’s Aid experience and research shows that separation does not always mean safety,” she added. Two survivors of domestic abuse addressed the launch yesterday, including one woman who asked only to be identified as ‘Eve’. She recounted the horrific abuse she suffered at the hands of her husband and called for more resources to support women to protect women when they leave abusive partners.

A FICTIONAL character started with a Photoshop contest entered by a man who had no idea the impact he would have with his creepy creation. Eric Knudsen has had an impact on popular culture as his character, Slender Man, became a part of modern literature, art, video games and now even a film - and even influenced an attempted murder. Who is Eric 'Victor Surge' Knudsen? He was the first person to create Slender Man, a mythical character, which was submitted to an internet forum called Something Awful. Although he has sparked the cult following which grew from Slender Man's creation, Knudsen says he does not spend much time on the internet.

He said: "I don't spend a lot of … [Read more...] about What is Slender Man, who is Eric ‘Victor Surge’ Knudsen, when is the film’s UK release date and what was the Slender Man stabbing?
