Location of Sighting: Stockton on Tees, Cleveland, UK
Date of Sighting: November 2005
Time: unknown/night time
Witness Name: anon
Witness Statement: Sorry this is an old ‘sighting’ and not really a sighting as such, I didn’t see what it was but it was very unusual. I have never spoken a word about it since it happened, not even to my husband, and I’ve been very unnerved by it ever since.
I was awoken from sleep one night by a beeping noise which I thought was a lorry reversing. This noise went on for some minutes and I started to wonder why a lorry would be reversing for so long as we live in a small cul-de-sac. The noise was 4 steady beeps in a row. It slowly got closer/louder until I could hear other noises as well. It was a sequence repeating over and over. Four beeps, an electrical up and down type of noise that’s hard to describe, it was a metallic noise going up and down an octave, then a whirring noise. Then it started again with the beeping.
It seemed to be moving very slowly and sounded like it was right next to our house at one point. I wanted to get out of bed and look out of the window but I couldn’t. I can’t explain why not, I just couldn’t move. I wasn’t fighting it or trying to move, I just somehow knew and accepted I couldn’t move. I kept thinking I wanted to check on my daughter in the next room and I really wanted to look out of the window, although I was scared at what I might see. At this point I had a thought in my head, I know how ridiculous this sounds but it wasn’t my thought. It was saying if I see anything I’ll be dealt with. It wasn’t a threat, it didn’t frighten me and wasn’t meant to be scary. It was a clinical, emotionless statement. I can’t explain this but all I know is it wasn’t me thinking it and it wasn’t a threat, it was just a fact.
I lay there and listened as the noise slowly moved away until I couldn’t hear it anymore. It scared me so much that every night since then I’ve checked the skies before going to bed to make sure whatever it was hasn’t come back. Obviously it could come back at any time and checking before I go to bed isn’t going to help, but I literally worry every night it might come back.
If anyone else heard/saw anything similar I’d really like to hear from you. I’d like to know what it was or what it looked like. I’ve never told anyone for fear of being branded ‘mad’ due to the bit about the thought that was put in my mind. By the way, I have no history of mental illness, I’m a normal, middle aged, professional woman. Nothing like this has ever happened to me before.
