Woman baffled by 'beam of light'
A woman was left mystified this morning after she saw what she thought was a UFO over Telford. Sue Oliver, 37, of Briarwood, Brookside, said she was walking her dogs at Nedgehill at 6.40am when she saw a "massive" beam of light. She is now trying to find out whether anyone else saw it.
She said: "I wasn't sure what it was, I don't usually believe in weird things but I knew it wasn't a shooting star. After talking to my colleagues we think it might have been a UFO."
The Meteorological Office said it was unlikely to have been caused by the Northern Lights because of the cloud cover.
