THE X-Files have been to Tyldesley!

Aliens and self-destructing electronic equipment were hot-topics when Bolton UFO Society secretary Philip Catterall spoke at Tyldesley Probus Club.

He talked about extra-terrestrial and unexplained happenings all over the world and, closer to home, at Ripperton Farm in Pembrokeshire.

According to Philip, cars refused to start, electronic equipment blew up, and a six feet tall alien appeared outside a window, yet neighbours neither saw nor heard a thing.

More details of these events appear in the book The Uninvited.
