London: People across Scotland and northern England have reported seeing a bright light flash across the night sky.
Police Scotland says the force began receiving calls about 6:55pm (1855 GMT) Monday, with people reporting a loud bang, a sudden blue, green or white light or a fireball in the sky.
Several drivers caught the sudden flash and streak of light on their dashboard cameras.
Police say a meteor shower is suspected. Weather forecasting service the Met Office said the incident wasn’t weather-related.
The defence ministry wouldn’t comment Tuesday on whether the flash was linked to military activity in the area.
