BAFFLED Bourne End residents are asking for help to dentify unexplained flying objects they spotted in the sky last night.

Huw Meredith was with his family at around 11.30pm last night when he they saw 30 to 40 orange lights travelling north west above their home in Southbourne Drive.

His neighbours also saw the strange phenomenon.

Mr Meredith, 49, said: "They were in clusters of between 1 and 5 or 6 and each light took about 30 to 45 seconds to pass over us.

"In total we saw them for about 15 minutes. There was no sound at all and there was very little wind at ground level.

"Some of the lights occasionally passed above the first lowest layer of cloud and were temporarily obscured.

"Weather conditions good and no one was drunk - honest!

"Can you help us to satisfy our curiosity at all? Has anyone else spotted them? Are there any little green men in the town hall?"
