Why were low-flying jets over Leicestershire last night?



There are a few things you might expect to see streaking across the night sky, maybe a plane or two, a few birds or even a shooting star if you're lucky.

But, the residents of Blaby in Leicestershire had a surprise last night when it was low flying jets that were dramatically cutting across the sky.

The mysterious jets flew over at about 9.55pm on Thursday evening, spooking residents with one Twitter user saying that they "literally made the ground shake."

Those living in the area reported hearing a terrifyingly loud noise, with some claiming to recognise the jet as a Eurofighter Typhoon.
