There continue to be many UFO sightings in Bonnybridge, about 300 a year apparently and some go back earlier than the beginning of the ‘flap’. Local believer Craig Malcolm, 37, claims hundreds of sightings since 1991, and has hours of video footage that he believes pro...

The most enduring fact about the village of Bonnybridge is that it became known in the 90s as the UFO capitol of, variously, Britain, Europe or the world depending on how much it was being built up. I was young enough when it began that it didn’t seem stranger than any...

This is the first winter we have lived on the farm. It's been snowing heavily for hours and it's starting to get dark.
