While checking reports of cattle wandering around a local council estate in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, on 28 November 1980, Godfrey claims he saw a bright light in the road ahead that he described as a hovering, rotating object. According to Godfrey, he experienced missing time of approximately twenty-five minutes, a split boot, and an itchy, red mark on his foot. Godfrey says that via hypnotic regression, he recalled being medically examined by alien creatures.
