STRANGE objects suspected to be meteors were spotted in the skies above Wigan yesterday morning.

Pemberton resident Paul Thompson saw two objects trailing jets of black smoke while driving past The Deanery High School at about 8.05am on Tuesday.

Mr Thompson said his wife also saw two similar objects with orange trails in the sky above the Premier Inn.

The sightings sparked a lively Facebook debate, with suggestions including military planes.
