      UFOLOGIST Chris Parr is writing a book on Cumbria's fascinating
      UFO history as he seeks to resurrect interest in unexplained
      aerial phenomena in the county.

      The 39-year-old researcher has spent the last 12 years trying to
      discover the truth about the numerous bizarre sightings which led
      to Cumbria being known as a hotbed of UFO activity.

      He was recently forced to the review the future of
      Whitehaven-based British UFO Hunters (Bufoh) which he
      co-ordinates, following a dramatic decline in sightings. In 2003
      there were 60 reported sightings in Cumbria, but that fell to 40
      in 2004 - and there have only been two so far this year.

      But Chris is determined to keep alive what he calls "the UFO
      dream" in Cumbria and has now teamed up with rival ufologist
      Sharon Larkin, of the North West Cumbria UFO research and
      investigations group. he hopes his book, which will also reveal
      the bizarre adventures of British ufologists, will generate new
      interest in UFOs locally and encourage a whole new generation of
      skywatchers to come to the fore.

      "Despite the lack of UFO sightings for Cumbria for 2005, the
      state of British Ufology is alive and kicking," he said.

      "Although media interest in the subject has waned over the last
      couple of years and Cumbria has so far had a very quiet year,
      this is by no means a reflection on the dedicated work of
      ufologists throughout Britain who continue to monitor the skies
      and network with the public and local media in order to acquire
      UFO-related evidence.

      "Ufology is a study that encompasses the whole field of
      unidentified flying objects and not just "alien craft" which is
      the usual image presented by the media."

      Chris will be concentrating on his book after completing the
      Cumbria UFO survey for 2005. It will focus on Cumbria's UFO
      history and the bizarre adventures of British ufologists in their
      quest for the truth. Sometimes the characters in Ufology are just
      as fascinating as the UFO cases," he said.

      In the meantime, he and his team at Bufoh will continue scanning
      the skies above for evidence of unexplained aerial phenomena -
      and hope others will come forward with reports of their
      sightings. Anyone who spots a UFO can contact the British UFO
      Hunters hotline on 01723 514700, while would-be X-Files agents
      can check out the Great British UFO Show conference in Leeds on
      October 1. It will feature a range of speakers and a selection of
      the world's best UFO footage.
