English Channel - (X-Files Mess): An unidentified flying object was seen hurtling into the Channel Tunnel rail track chasing an unmarked goods train minutes before a mysterious fire erupted seven miles from the Calais terminus.
Locals claimed the freight carrier 'was full of illegal asylum seekers' from the notorious Sangatte detention center.
Some eyewitnesses said the UFO is one of an EU fleet designed to reinforce border patrols.
"Just part of the latest scareforce tactics to keep out pesky welfare tourists," local bigot Mrs Minne McNuts told reporters.
Firefighters fought a ten hour battle to put out the blaze and have cordoned off Tunnel exits pending a specialist Ministry of Defence UFO cover-up team's arrival.
Eurotunnel Corp sources are saying nothing.
