Year 1 Visit from Police after UFO sighting!

PC Smith said:

We have also been engaging with Mengham infant school who had "reported" to Police that an UFO had landed in the grounds and a "Alien" was on the loose.

The young children had written reports throughout the day and contained the scene of the UFO crash.

I had gone to the school with PCSO Wright to collect the reports and spoke to the children. Who were extremely excited but very well behaved.

It was a great recruitment day for Hampshire Constabulary and I have now got 30 - 40 "deputised" children to keep Hayling Safe.

Maybe that explains the low number of crimes on Hayling this week!
