Description: I had just gone to the shops to get a drink to watch the Barcelona Milan game as I walked back I saw a bright orange light coming from the direction of Southend Airport, at first thought it was one of those pesky police helicopters that drive you made all night long, but thought that's a strange colour light not the usual search light and no flashing lights and no drone, so I stood still and watched it come towards me, as it did I could clearly see that it was just a huge orange ball, it swerved slightly to the left and traveled at great speed right over me at about 3 to 500 ft, as I looked up it was just round orange ball, I also cupped my hands around my ears to see if I could hear any thing, it was silent but it was traveling with great speed as it passed. It was the same from the rear, the last I saw of it it was flying off over the Thames Estuary in the Kent direction, I called a few passers by but they only saw the tail end of it.

TV/Radio: I put Talk Sport on when I went to bed woke up in the early hours and people had been calling in about sightings in Norfolk
