UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:

Hi John

Thanks for the message I have just had a look and I think I could easily rule out balloons/ lanterns. The only possibility that I can think of due to the speed was something like the red arrows. Which I find highly unlikely due to it being over a populated area and at night plus there was no noise at all.

I have had a look around and I cannot seem to find any more reportings at the minute of the lights, I am still searching though !!!!

They lasted in sight for around 6 seconds before disappearing.

Many thanks.
