encountered a strange craft...
A RETIRED cop’s close encounter with a UFO is being turned into a Hollywood blockbuster.
The film will be based on PC Alan Godfrey’s book Who Or What Were They? about his UFO experience 41 years ago.
He was searching for a herd of cows when he encountered a strange craft in Todmorden, West Yorks, in November 1980.
Alan, now 74, drew a sketch of the UFO in his notebook after his radio failed.
He also noticed the bottom was spinning.
After a bright flash he ended up further down the road and could not account for 25 minutes.
Now he has signed a deal with top producer Michael Crais.
Alan said: “I’m chuffed to bits.
"I said to Michael, I know these things take a long time to film but I’m 74 and I’d love to see it before I curl my toes.”
