“It wouldn’t have been an aircraft we don’t have aircraft flying at night, it’s certainly not an aircraft related event,” said the spokesman.
“But no-one can confirm or deny that, it’s not our area of expertise.”
The sighting was released alongside many others by the National Archives today (Thursday) which were originally reported to the Ministry of Defence.
