People have reported seeing UFOs in the sky after hearing fighter jets flying above north Kent at the weekend.
People across Gravesend and Dartford reported hearing the low-flying fighter jets on Saturday evening.
Some took to a UFO sighting website to report bright lights being chased by fighter jets.
Adrian and Jessica, from Istead Rise, posted on the site: "We looked out on the patio toward the sky and saw a reddy orange shaped object (which was very low in the sky) and was an oval shape but quite large.
"It was moving in an unusual pattern (unlike conventional aircraft) and did a tight abrupt circle before shooting off in such a fast fashion that the two jets that appeared were too late to catch up with it."
Matt, from Dartford, also posted, saying: "I see LOTS around 50 [sic.] what appeared to be bright lights / stars, at first glance in the sky.
"Upon closer inspection, they appeared to be moving, then a loud rumbling noise of fighter jets whooshed past very very low.... I heard a few loud bangs, it is all very eerie and quite strange."
And people took to our Facebook page to complain about the noise.

An as yet unconfirmed but simpler explanation is that it was an RAF training exercise in preparation for the Olympics.
