Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis seen across Wales

People across Wales were treated to a spectacular light show on Thursday night with the rare appearance of the Aurora Borealis.

The brightly coloured lights, also known to as the Northern Lights, were visible from south Wales to Denbighshire, Flintshire and Anglesey.

The display is caused by electrically charged particles from the sun entering the earth's atmosphere and can usually only be seen much further north.

Matthew Richards reports.
