A church worker believes he has photographed a meteor blazing a trail above Cheltenham.

Matthew Pinless, 31, from Fairview, spotted the fast-moving object in the sky while walking along Glenfall Street in Cheltenham at about 5pm on Tuesday.

He said: "I was walking along the road with my young son and I spotted this object moving through the sky.

"At first I thought it was a plane, but then I could see it was moving too quickly for that.

"I managed to grab my phone and take a photograph, but it disappeared behind a cloud and never came out the other side.

"I don't subscribe to the UFO theory, so I am fairly sure it was a meteor, but I would be interested to hear if anybody else saw it in the sky."
