Was this a UFO over Rotherham on Christmas Day?
Did you see this "UFO" above the M1 on Christmas Day?

BAFFLED Ernie Smith believes he may have seen a UFO in the sky above Rotherham on Christmas Day.

Ernie, of Whiston, said he saw a strange object above the M1 near Penny Hill Wind Farm.

He said: “At first I thought it might be a police helicopter but it moved so swiftly across the sky.

“It was also quite a windy day and I decided that it wasn’t Santa Claus.

“It may have been a drone but I wondered if any of your readers saw it.”
