Stunning shooting stars will be visible in the skies above Suffolk tonight as the Geminid meteor shower returns.

The meteors, which are debris from the 3200 Phaethon asteroid, are forecast to be at their most visible between 3am and 4am on Tuesday.

An estimated 120 meteors will be visible every hour in what is an annual display.

Star-gazers are advised to look towards the north-east and keep an eye out for the shower's distinct pattern.

Some of the best places to see the meteors are at designated Dark Sky Discovery Sites, including Walberswick and Westleton Common.
