VIDEO: 'UFO' spotted over Asfordby

WEDNESDAY 6.15PM: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Or is it a UFO?

Three Melton men fishing in Asfordby were amazed when three bright lights appeared in the sky on Friday.

Stuart Williams (46) went night fishing with his brother Craig and a friend at the lake off Hoby Road. Stuart was shouting over to his brother when something caught his eye.

Stuart said: "A bright light suddenly appeared out of nowhere, it moved quickly and in a weird pattern."

Knowing people wouldn't believe him when he told them the next day he filmed the 'UFO' on his camera phone – and you can see the pictures here.

He added: "I was really scared while I was filming, the lake at night is a pretty spooky place anyway. And I'm certainly less sceptical about UFO sightings now.

"If we didn't have so much fishing equipment we would have ran away."

A spokesman for East Midlands Airport said: "Air traffic control logs do not show any aircraft activity in the area at the stated time."
