Brean UFO sighting grabs international media attention's exclusive story about a cylinder-shaped UFO being spotted in the skies above Brean, near Burnham-On-Sea, has generated international news headlines.

Our story here was first published on Tuesday night and since then it has been followed up by Fox News in America, Pakistan's Sindh Today, Croatia's Javno newspaper, and Thailand's Thaindian News.

National newspapers in the UK have also covered the story, including the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and The Sun.

The sighting has also been covered by Channel Four and AOL and has generated thousands of comments and numerous theories from UFO experts and bloggers.

UFO expert Malcolm Robinson said the object was "totally consistent" with other sightings. Mr Robinson, who runs UFO group Strange Phenomena Investigations, said: "This video of a UFO is clearly very exciting."

"While UFOs are commonly thought to be spherical in shape, we receive dozens of calls from people who have spotted similar cylinder-shaped objects. There is, of course, an argument that this could be a weather balloon or some other common object."

"But my research has shown that it is totally consistent with other UFO sightings, none of which have been hoaxes or naturally-occurring phenomenon."

The object, pictured above, was seen travelling over Brean whilst onlookers at a caravan park watched on.

There are already a range of theories on what the object might have been, with many people believing it was a kite or weather balloon.
