metro.co.uk - Winchester councillor Adrian Hicks is on the search for an alien dressed like a ballerina that he spotted five years ago. Visible only to the chosen few, the pretty blonde female UFO interloper is said to shuffle along the pavement in a penguin-like walk, wearing only a white ballet outfit and broad smile.
Is it here, in this quiet Hampshire backwater, that 'the invasion' has started? Yes, according to Councillor Hicks. He says he saw the ballerina-like alien under the city's Guildhall clock five years ago but has only now come clean about his strange encounter.
'It was staggering – I am not usually lost for words but I was that day,' he said. 'She was a humanoid walking with a penguin-like gait. She had very large oval eyes and was twirling her hands in a circular motion. She was laughing and seemed to be enjoying herself. She was human enough to get away with it,' he added.
And the intrigue doesn't end there. Mr Hicks, who has spent £400 perfecting an artist's impression of the alien, believes she is linked to covert US and British military operations at a nearby base. 'UFOs are flying in and out of the military base – Winchester is the UFO capital of Europe,' he added.
Mr Hicks, a Lib Dem councillor for the city, claims he saw the alien in January or February 2004. He said other shoppers also saw her but no one had admitted it. The hospital technician also regrets not plucking up the courage to speak to her.
He has not spoken about the day for fear he would jeopardise his chances of winning a council seat, he added. His colleagues, he says, are 'in denial' about the existence of aliens in Winchester.
