Mystery continues to surround a humming noise heard in and around Primrose Hill after further witness reports of the phenomenon.

The Ham&High reported in February this year an unidentified “deep resonating humming” coming from all directions at once in Primrose Hill, which was logged on the UK UFO Sightings website.

Now another resident has contacted the paper claiming to have heard the sound five or six times overnight on May 9.

Vlad Syrota said: “I’ve been hearing the alleged humming in Primrose Hill all night.

“I live literally two minutes from the park, I’ve been up late studying and roughly every hour I have been hearing a five to 15 second low pitch hum.

“I can’t locate the source, my mother has been hearing it as well as my next door neighbours.”

The UFO report earlier in the year described the noise as a “deep resonating humming sound coming from the near distance” and said that four people had heard the sound at the same time.

The report, made by a man who recorded his name as Andy G, said he was unable to place the source as it came “from all directions at once, but from no specific direction”.

Nick Pope, who ran the Ministry of Defence’s UFO project from 1991 to 1994 and worked for the MoD for 21 years, refuted the idea that the sounds might be caused by extraterrestrial phenomenon.

He said strange sounds have been heard all around the world in the last six months and the mystery has generated quite a buzz.

“Just because the sound comes from the sky does not mean it’s UFOs,” said Mr Pope. “Like the UFO mystery, there’s never going to be a single explanation.

“The simplest solution is the correct one. Some of the noise will be power lines or train lines. You have that sort of effect on the Tube - there are huge jarring sounds. Primrose Hill is quite high up and sound can travel.

“I recommend that if people have a mobile phone they capture the sound and put it on YouTube.”

A more radical explanation was offered by Phil Francis, an intergalatic politics researcher from Holloway, who said the sounds were probably due to the US government’s High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP).

“I personally think it’s down to HAARP, which is mainly a US government project which is altering the earth’s ionosphere - a layer of the earth’s atmosphere. One of the effects is changing weather patterns.”

Mr Francis, who produces The Multiverse, a weekly newsletter on terrestrial and extraterrestrial affairs, also added: “HAARP might be a way of detecting UFOs. They have been coming since the beginning of man’s history.”
