More than 6,000 people have taken out "alien abduction policies" each worth the equivalent of £8million in compensation.

The bizarre deal, provided by Saint Lawrence Agency in Altamonte Springs, Florida, promises clients to cover for supernatural sites, such as Area 51.

It offers coverage for a one-off fee of $24.95 (£20) in which they will mail a paper copy of the certificate in a frame. Digital copies cost $19.95 (£16).

But there's one catch in the small print, they will only pay $1 per year over a 10 to 20 million year period.

Mike St Lawrence, who owns the firm, said the surge in interest comes after a Facebook page urging people to storm Area 51 went viral.
