Ufologists are predicting a record number of UFO sightings in Britain this year after an explosion of alleged UFOs reported to the Ministry of Defence in the first six months of the year.

The Sun reports a total of 231 sightings passed on to the MoD so far this year; compared to to 285 in 2008, 135 in 2007 and 97 in 2006.

The newspaper quoted leading UFO expert Nick Pope as saying: "We are now on track for a record year."

"I thought the number of UFOs reported last year was high, but we now know they are being reported in increasing numbers," he said.

Experts are divided over whether there has been a spike in UFO activity over Britain in the last two years as suggested by the number of sightings reported to the Ministry, or whether this could be the prevalence of digital cameras and mobile phones which are more easily able to record such phenomena.

Alleged government coverup of UFO activity in both the United States and the UK has been the subject of controversy in recent months with NASA releasing videos of alleged UFOs during the space agency's missions.

Ufologists have called on the governments to "come clean" on reports of UFO activity.
