      LONDON (AFP) - UFO enthusiasts got a boost Friday when Welsh police
      confirmed that one of their helicopter crews had spotted an "unusual
      aircraft" flying over Cardiff earlier this month. An investigation into
      the sighting had been launched, they said.

      The police clarification came after The Sun reported a UFO had "attacked"
      a police helicopter, following it for several miles over the Bristol
      Channel. "The pilot banked sharply to avoid being hit, then launched into
      a high-speed pursuit. But he was forced to give up the chase as the
      helicopter's fuel ran low -- and the UFO escaped," the tabloid reported.
      The helicopter crew had described the object as "flying saucer-shaped and
      circled by flashing lights," it added.

      "Err... " not so, said the police.

      "South Wales Police can confirm its air support unit sighted an unusual
      aircraft. This was reported to the relevant authorities for their
      investigation," police said in a brief statement, avoiding the use of the
      term 'UFO', or unidentified flying object.

      At the time of the incident, the helicopter with three men on board was
      waiting to land at the St Athan RAF base near Cardiff. The sighting
      reportedly took place at 00:40 am (23:40 GMT) on June 8.

      South Wales Police denied there was a pursuit and indicated that the
      helicopter crew was never in any danger.
