A father and son spotted a UFO hovering above the skies of Uppingham.

Stephen Pepper and eight-year-old Sonny were travelling back to the town from Launde Abbey on Wednesday evening when they saw the object above Uppingham.

The UFO had a large dome shape on top with lights that looked like an erupting volcano. It stayed in the sky for a minute and then disappeared.

Stephen, of The Beeches in Uppingham, said: "I know for sure this was a UFO. If I had been stumbling out of the pub at the end of the night people might not have believed me but this was at 6.15pm when I was driving home from work."
