Coastguard told of strange lights in sky over Harris

The coastguard has investigated reports of unusual lights in the night sky over South Harris in the Western Isles.

Stornoway Coastguard received the report from a member of the public at about 2240 GMT on Thursday.

The caller said there were two amber lights and a flashing blue-green light for two to three minutes before a white light hovered for a few seconds, and was later obscured by cloud.

The incident was classed as a false alarm with good intent.

Leverburgh Coastguard Team investigated the report over Northton in South Harris.
