The latest batch of Ministry of Defence files about past UFO investigations includes a lovely instance of bureaucratic buck-passing:

The person concerned had written to ask about MoD policy on alien abductions and pointed out that if the experience was real, the MoD was failing to maintain the territorial integrity of UK airspace – a core defence mission. After explaining the MoD's role with respect to UFOs, the somewhat sniffy response stated: "Abduction is a criminal offence and as such is a matter for the civil police."
