UFO spotted over Newton

A stargazer has described how she spotted a strange light in the sky over Newton-le-Willows on Sunday evening (August 2).

Jude Flint, of Cairn Brae, Newton, says she and her husband Danny were stunned to see an orange cube-shaped UFO hurtling across the sky shortly before 9pm.

She said: "I'm very sceptical about men from mars, but my husband and I are completely baffled about this and want an explanation. We also wondered who else may have spotted it.

"We are both intelligent professional people who are not attention seekers nor sci-fi fans - just two very curious and baffled people.

"Hope you can help solve our mystery? I'm sure there is a very logical explanation."
