Describing what he saw, the man said: “The UFO seemed to be quite high up in the sky. I just saw this silver thing which kept spinning around. It went away and came back again. Several seconds later this large orange ball of fire was beneath it. I looked up at the sky and I just said to myself 'what the heck is that?'.

“I've not been scared like that for a very long time. I've never seen something like that. I rushed to get back to my flat and I wondered what would happen if they landed. It was thinking about (the science fiction film) War of the Worlds.

“At the time it was very quiet and there was hardly anybody about. I also heard about two or three alarms going off as well. All in all it lasted about 12 or 15 minutes.”
