Nut-shaped flying object ‘had arms’, says Axminster man.

A mysterious flying object has been spotted in the skies over Axminster.

A witness has reported seeing a round white disc with bright lights in the town on a number of occasions.

He describes the object as “changing into a walnut shape”.

The resident also told the Midweek Herald that the unusual flying object often appears at dusk.

He claimed the object had “big arms coming out of each side”.

This latest sighting comes after Honiton pensioner Alan Cameron spotted what he believes was some kind of aircraft hovering over Dumpdon Hill – almost clipping the tops of nearby houses.
