Bristol Post report of objects Tues 12 May 2015

There is a local report with photo. Could be worth following up as per suggestion from the meeting in Birmingham.

I'd have to say that it looks

I'd have to say that it looks a lot like an aeroplane vapour trail being illuminated by the setting Sun. A nice picture of one but in my opinion it is not a meteor or other astronomical phenomenom. Others have posted similar thoughts on the Bristol Post website.

Cheers,
