UFOS in Ulster no horror show sensation
Berwickshire bloggees will not be surprised to hear that the mysterious lights in sky, originally seen by some one out side the Cross Inn in Paxton-looking towards Berwick-upon-Tweed, have now resurfaced (if that is the right word) in Norn Iron.

This was the main item on the TV news last night with one poor reporter on an all night vigil in case they reappeared again. They didn't and may well be returning Paxton wards.
