A bright meteor has been sighted over Britain in the early hours.

Witnesses have described the object as a green flash moving south to north for a few seconds, leaving a magnesium-white trail.

Sightings have been reported in locations including London, Hampshire, Stafford and on the east coast of England at 03:16 GMT.

Its colour has prompted people on Twitter to describe it as the St Patrick’s Day meteor.
