A DOG WALKER in Devon believes he has found a spot where an alien space ship landed, sending conspiracy theorists into a frenzy.
A resident of Plymouth was out with his dogs in the forest of Meddon, Devon, on Monday, June 13, when he found an area of flattened trees. Ben Landricombe, who made the discovery, jumped to a conclusion of alien origin, believing it was a UFO landing site. Mr Landricombe is quoted by Cornwall Live as saying: “Found a crash site in the woods – could be UFO.
“I stopped to take the dog for a walk in the woods today as we’re camping.
“They were snapped at the top – that was what I thought was strange.
“We took the dog for a walk and it felt eerie and we walked about a mile and came across this.
“We took the pictures and then felt someone was watching us and heard weird sounds so we ran back to our camper. Something strange about this place.”
Conspiracy theorists jumped on the video, claiming it to be evidence of an alien landing.
Prominent UFO hunter Scott C Waring said the flattened area could also be a sign of an underground base.
Mr Waring wrote on his blog ET Data Base: “You can clearly see the still living trees laying sideways and a circular wall of trees still growing straight and normal on the edges.
“Very odd, and yes this could be a landing place for a UFO, but it could also be the exact location of a tunnel opening up from an underground base five kilometres below the surface.
“Dirt and rock are easy for aliens to open and close with their advanced tech, as easily as a human opens and closes a zip lock bag. 100 percent proof of alien activity in the area.”
While the existence of aliens has never been confirmed, the US Department of Defense has recently acknowledged a video from a US Navy pilot’s radar footage of a mystery UFO with “glowing aura” and flying erratically.
The video first circulated back in 2017, but it took the DoD three years to acknowledge the video’s existence.
According to Pentagon spokeswoman Sue Gough, the sighting was released “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos”.

She said: “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorised release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”
When the 2017 footage emerged, a former Pentagon employee Luis Elizondo, who headed up a secret official UFO program, said it was “compelling evidence” we might not be alone in the universe.
Mr Elizondo said: “These aircraft – we’ll call them aircraft – are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory that we are aware of.
“Things that don’t have any obvious flight services, any obvious forms of propulsion, and manoeuvring in ways that include extreme manoeuvrability beyond, I would submit, the healthy G-forces of a human or anything biological.”
