Description: I was about 4/5yrs old. My mum had just taken me and my brothers to a fireworks display in East London Stadium. Whilst walking home along old Bethnal Green Road I thought I saw a bright red rocket shooting from behind the trees. It shot up like a huge fireworks rocket and went up into the sky and shot straight back down and stopped over the road about 30/40ft high from the ground. It was a bright red light type saucer shape.
It hovered there for about 2/3 mins. It looked liked it was pulsating....gettin redder and redder and brighter and brighter. Then it shot straight up into the air and dissapeared. Lots of people stopped cars and got out. Lots of people saw it.
My mum tells me to stop telling people as they will think I'm crazy. She will only talk about it with us. I dont care what people think. I know what we saw. It was a UFO 100%.
