Motor technician Mark Gill took this fascinating video on his mobile phone after his 12-year-old daughter Ruby spotted the mysterious object from the family's garden in Park Avenue last Friday, VE Day.

Mark (43) said: "We were all sat in the garden when Ruby saw this bright orb-type object in the sky. I think one of us said 'how bright is that star?' I wondered if it was the planet Venus but then it started moving really quickly. It lasted around five minutes in total.

"I've never seen anything like it in my life. It was moving really eratically. Unbelievable really. A UFO is an unidentified flying object and that's exactly what it was. I've got an open mind, but I'm not saying it was aliens, it could have been a military craft."

Mark, who lives with wife Natalie and their other daughter Mara, also wondered whether the object could have been a drone, but friends believe it was moving too fast for that.

"It could be a drone or even a government or police drone. I just know that it was very fast," he added.
