Was time-travel an element in the M6 paranormal event?
I first became aware of the crash on the M6 when my brother was traveling to a friend’s party in London and was on the same stretch of the M6, about a quarter of a mile behind the crash, as it happened. He felt there was something strange about the scene as he drove past it and suggested I check it out. He said he saw a few plain clothes officers at the scene examining three of the vehicles and also that the tarmac showed signs of being burnt in a line across the southbound carriageway.
As a journalist I believed this was more than your usual auto crash. I think my natural journalistic inquisitiveness took over.
When I visited the scene the day after the accident it was clear that the markings on the carriageway were significant to the investigation team and this immediately got my attention. I was fascinated by how meticulous the team were still examining the banking on the side of the carriageway and also why they were taking samples of the burnt tarmac from the hard shoulder; these were things I would have not normally expected to see at a crash scene.
I was able to talk with one of the investigation team and this became the basis for my first report. He insisted that I did not use his name or identify him in anyway. He told me not to quote him in the article because any comments would be open to both interpretation and also challenge but I was still keen to report on the incident given what he was intimating in that conversation.
Soon after I was contacted by a Detective Silverton! Detective Silverton is part of a special investigation team based in London but not connected to the Metropolitan police. They apparently deal with investigations that don’t fit the norm.
Initially I was terrified as this was only really something I was doing on the side and I never imagined that anything would come of it; least of all being contacted by what turned out to be one of the lead investigators.
Of course, being one of very few journalists to actually report the accident meant that Detective Silverton perhaps felt he could trust the way I was reporting it.
What really happened that day on the M6. I don’t know. As a reporter you try to report the facts and not get caught up in the hype of what could have happened and also what may have happened unless there is evidence to support it.
The only facts I can point to are the burnt tarmac, the fact that the three vehicles that caused the accident allegedly contained no signs of human tissue that would be consistent with an accident and that such a high level team were brought into investigate the accident in the first place.
These facts alone suggest that there are still many elements of the accident that remain unexplained.
As with anything of this nature, good information is hard to source and many of the people you speak to are simply too vague in what they say to the point that it would be laughed at in any report of this type.
It is only since Detective Silverton got in touch with me directly that I have had any constancy of contact; and even then it is when he says he is ready to carry out an interview. (More to come)
Do I have any special insight into what is going on outside of my reports?
That is very difficult. I have been shown pieces of evidence to substantiate the reports; some photographic and some physical. This evidence does support what I have been told but I have been given strict guidelines as to what I can actually write so reporting on the
accident in its entirety is impossible.
But there have been items I have seen that are beyond my explanation; I think as a reporter you blank out the why or the how and just report the facts.
