Police have attempted to quash reports of widespread UFO sightings among baffled residents from Bedfont to Twickenham by insisting the mysterious lights were just entertainment at a party.
Since our initial article last week, describing the three strange lights spotted by Bedfont gran Lynne Martin, calls have flooded into the Chronicle office from all over the borough and beyond, with one teen bringing us video footage of a previous identical sighting - click here to watch it.
Dozens of callers claim to have seen the mysterious lights hovering in the night sky on Sunday, July 6, and they all insist there were no beams linking them to the ground.
Gulsheen Kaur, of Jersey Road, Hounslow, said: "My husband and I didn't think anything of it at first we just assumed it was a spotlight. But later we realised there had been no beam and we got scared."
And over in Twickenham 68-year-old Lesley Butler insisted: "They looked like balloons, with no middle darting about. They definitely weren't laser lights, or aircraft and there was no beam."
After receiving a number of calls from bewildered members of the public Met Police decided to investigate.
A spokeswoman said: "Members of the public called police from approximately 11pm to reports of numerous lights in the sky in the west London area of the city. Police tracked the lights to a birthday celebration in the Bedfont area."

Susan Ward, 47, of Sandalwood Road, Feltham, said: "I don't care what they say. I've seen searchlights and I know this wasn't coming from the ground."
