COTTERED, England, Aug. 5 (UPI) -- A BBC journalist said he spotted a UFO hovering over a field in the English countryside while driving to an airport in the early morning.

Mike Sewell, a sports journalist for the BBC, said he was driving through Cottered, England, to the Stansted Airport at 4:15 a.m. Wednesday when he "saw this big bright light in the sky descending towards the road and as it got closer it banked to the left," The Sun reported Thursday.

"As it banked to the left it went cross-country, I could see underneath and it wasn't an airplane and it wasn't a helicopter," Sewell said. "I dread saying this, disc-shaped. It had several lights flashing all around it and underneath there were at least two large panel lights, soft white lights underneath."

Sewell said he "eventually lost sight of it after two or three minutes."

"It was weird. I was totally freaked out," he said.

Hertfordshire police said they did not receive any reports of a UFO Wednesday morning.
