Geraint Edwards and Elgar Hughes of the Ceirog Valley, Denbighshire, recall seeing a UFO in the sky over north east Wales in 1974.

A 1974 “UFO incident” which was dubbed the Welsh Roswell was dismissed as an earthquake and a meteor combining, official files show.

There was a huge bang and a brilliant light over the Berwyn Mountains in north east Wales, and there were later claims a spaceship crash was concealed.

Comparisons were drawn with Roswell, New Mexico, USA, in 1947, where it is claimed an alien crash was concealed.

But a Ministry of Defence (MoD) investigation said there was no UFO.

The National Archives files show it was explained by a noisy earth tremor coinciding with a meteor burning up in the atmosphere.

A search and rescue team was scrambled from RAF Valley on Anglesey, but found no wreckage on the mountainside.
