“It happened in between two short power cuts, so we wondered if it was linked to that.”

A police spokeswoman said: “We received a report at 10.43 pm on Saturday from a gentleman who said he'd seen a large object spinning in the sky for around 10 to 12 minutes, which looked like a UFO. This was the only report received."

The apparent sighting comes just four months after similar reports of a UFO above the town's Mildenhall and Howard estates.

Eyewitnesses told how, on September 3, they saw an object at about 9.30pm spinning and tilting above houses and appeared to change colour.
