Doughty, along with his friend Kevin, had been sitting at home watching the football on TV when he received an alert on his phone from his doorbell camera to tell him that someone was outside.
When he played back the footage he expected to see a person standing on his doorstep, but was surprised to discover that the camera had instead been triggered by something in the sky.
The object, which consisted of three bright lights in a triangular formation, could be seen slowly moving above the houses from right to left across the frame.
“I looked at the footage and played it back,” he said.
“It was silent. Three lights came from the sky and I thought it was really weird.”
“Where it’s come through the trees, it’s come over the house opposite me then the footage captures it coming from right to left. It disappears over the top of woodland to the left of my house.”
“It was a bit of a chilling feeling really – I thought ‘oh my god, that’s quite close’. I wondered if I’d discovered something nobody knows anything about.”
“When I showed Kevin he said ‘jeez, that looks like a UFO’.”
