Aliens visit us here on Earth - say Echo readers.
A weekend webpoll attracted nearly 700 people and 64 per cent of then believe we get visitors from other planets.
The poll was in response to a suspected UFO sighting over Bournemouth on Thursday night, which turned out to be graduating students releasing Chinese lanterns.Source: Bournemouth Daily Echo Monday 28th May 2007

Alien communications? UFOs? Top secret military activity? The Echo has been flooded with theories about the mysterious lights over Bournemouth on Thursday night.
But now we can exclusively reveal they were nothing more than Asian-style sky lanterns, released by students celebrating the end of their courses.Source: Bournemouth Daily Echo Saturday 26th May 2007

For as long as I can remember - I've never seen a flag for Dorset.
We're all probably familiar with the St Pirin flag of Cornwall - black with a white cross and - some of us will have seen the newly created Devon flag (green with a white cross).
So I was a little amazed to suddenly see several online shops selling a so-called Dorset' flag.
It appears to be white with three red lions in heraldic style similar to the Dorset County Council seal.
Can this be right? Are their any vexillologists out there who can confirm this correct for Dorset?
