Pupils at an infant school reported seeing "little green hands" after a UFO crash landed in their wildlife garden as part of World Space Week. Police joined pupils at Wicklewood Primary and Nursery on Monday to cordon off and answer questions about a mysterious space-craft, which appeared overnight in the school playground.
