Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A ufology bulletin says that near Gateshead, England, on September 3, 1979, at night, after a series of sightings about which nothing is said by an undetermined witness and her family, that witness woke up in her bedroom seeing a small metallic disc-shaped object inside her bedroom and a dozen small men-like beings, 0.75 cm tall, with large heads and eyes and feminine features, dressed in white uniforms and cloaks.

These beings walked up to her bed and examined her while she was paralyzed.

Later, she reported a further incident with an entity. There seems to exist no other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that near Gateshead, England, on September 3, 1979, at night, after a series of "low level sightings" by the witness and her family, the witness woke up to see a small metallic disc shaped object inside her bedroom. A dozen small men like beings now appeared, these were 2 ½ foot tall, with large heads and eyes and feminine features. They wore white uniforms and cloaks. They walked up to her bed and examined her. The witness was paralyzed during the encounter. She later reported a further incident with an entity. Rosales indicates that he has no other information and that the source is John Watson, in Northern UFO News # 74.

Points to consider:

With the sparse information provided, just as Albert Rosales points out, there is no real chance to seriously demonstrate anything.

However, the report, in my opinion, has all the markings of a very ordinary scenario: the family might have seen some lights in the sky and speculated about alien spaceship, seen more lights now and then and continued to discuss about alien UFOs, and the daughter went to bed someday afterwards with her mind set on this topic, an impressive topic for a child.

During the night, she might have experienced the rather common and ordinary episode of hypnagogic hallucination or "sleep paralysis", colored with the topic of flying saucers and little aliens, but also colored by the kid's imagination for dressing them into capes and imagining a tiny flying saucer floating in a bedroom.

At no point does the report state anything about her age, but also, nothing is said as to how the report surfaced. One possibility is that she woke up and remembered the episode consciously, another possibility is that some ufologist had her undergo sessions of "hypnotic regression", maybe with the parents approval since they thought to have seen UFOs themselves. The note that the female witness later reported a further incident is rather typical of witnesses having, allegedly, their "memories recovered" sessions after sessions, with as much material surfacing as desired, willingly of unwillingly, by both the ufologist-hypnotist and the witness.
