UFO Hovering A Hundred Feet Above Gadsby Street Nuneaton UK

Date:  Between 1980 - 1985
Hello, I have just stumbled across your post about lights in the sky. When I was little, I lived in Gadsby Street myself. When I was four we moved to Weddington. At that time my dad worked for British gas, digging up roads, fixing leaks on 24 hour call.
To my recollection it was soon after Christmas Day within a year or two of moving, that my dad got called out along with his crew to a leak in Gadsby Street in the early hours.
The next day he said he and his crew were repairing the leak, and having already made a lot of noise digging the hole of course when the crew and many of the residents out in the street complaining about the noise, when they all witnessed an unidentified object hovering silently above the houses. 
The was a matter of a hundred feet or so above. How long it stuck around for etc., I don't know. He said he was sure it would be front page of the Tribune at least, but when he looked in the papers he found there was a tiny mention a couple of pages in.
There are and were only a couple of tabloids in existence in Nuneaton and this I estimate must have happened between 1980-85. It changed my dads outlook on the subject forever, and since has become a silent believer that we are not alone!
