Alan Godfrey was the policeman who originally discovered the body of Zigmund Adamski at a coal yard in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, England in June 1980. Adamski is considered to be an alien abduction case.
Close Encounter of the first kindEdit
Six months after finding Zigmund’s body, Alan Godfrey was again on duty in Todmorden at 5 am, when he claims to have sighted a UFO.
Alan says, "I wish I'd never seen the UFO, particularly because of the effects on my children."
"It's not easy having a policeman as a father but when he's a policeman who saw a UFO its even worse."
This was a huge turning point in Alan Godfrey’s life. He left the police force and has a new role as a speaker at charity fundraising events.
