Deborah Hatton contacted Wigan Today to share photographs and videos of the item she saw as she drove along Bickershaw Lane, from Hindley to Platt Bridge, at 9.30pm on Saturday.

She said: "I saw what looked like a V-shape object falling vertically from the sky then all of a sudden it turned right, like in a boomerang direction, and was as if it had been steered to fall at an angle. Then it left a trail of thick black smoke.

"I can’t explain it, would love to know what it was, was very strange. The pictures couldn’t pick up what I could see, such a shame."
