Somebody was certainly interfering in the investigation, but
there's no evidence to suggest it was anything do to with
officialdom. Quite the opposite, in fact. As you will be aware,
Chris Rolfe received a letter telling him he was no longer
permitted to investigate the UFO sighting in question. The
letter appeared to be an official one, but was in fact a hoax.
Somebody else was trying to make Chris and Jerry think that the
RAF were taking an interest in their investigation.

The BT investigator who Jerry contacted found no evidence to
suggest that anyone had interfered with his telephone or the
telephone line. I don't know the background or expertise of the
"independent investigator" who Jerry called in, so can't comment
on his conclusions. However, media stories that have appeared in
recent years demonstrate clearly that the technology to record
other people's telephone calls is more widely available than
many people suppose. And such technology is certainly not
exclusively in the hands of official bodies.

Somebody was certainly making a nuisance of themselves and
complicating Chris and Jerry's investigation. However, I suspect
these actions were the work of somebody with a ufological agenda
of their own, and not of any government agency.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
