Location: Otterburn, Northumberland, England
Time: morning
Summary: A Mr. Stocker, wireless operator for the Territorial Army and a driver were traveling through open moorland in a Land Rover on a single-track road. As they crossed a bridge and ascended a slight hill, Stocker saw what looked like an elderly woman dressed in a long, gray coat and a shawl. She was standing on a sandy area on the left hand side of the road beneath a hawthorn tree. After they passed her, Stocker glanced in one of the vehicle’s rearview mirror, but now could see no one beneath the thorn tree. The drive too had seen the figure. They went back but there was nobody visible anywhere on the open moor around and there were no footprints in the sandy ground at the spot.

The witness described the humanoids as man-like, about 1.80m in height, athletic in built, and wearing shirts, shorts and “military caps”, the color of their skin was rosy-white.
