There were strange goings on in the sky above Coppull over the weekend.

That’s according to Simon Latham, 40, who was walking down Park Road in the village at around 7.40pm on Saturday when he spotted four lights in the sky.

Intrigued, he went to mother Margaret’s house nearby and she also saw the lights.

Simon said: “There were four lights in the sky but no noise, so I can only think they were UFOs.

“I went to get my mum and she saw the lights as well.

"At first there were four but one disappeared and the other three had formed a triangle.

"They were there for about 10 minutes then one suddenly zapped off to the left, followed by the other two.”

Sgt Kevin Mountain, of Chorley police, said: “We sometimes get sightings reported to us but nothing reported on Saturday.”
