British astronaut Tim Peake has tweeted a stunning photograph taken from space, with the Channel Islands taking centre frame.

He posted the night time view of England and France on Twitter, with the caption 'Hey, I recognise that place!'

The pilot is working onboard the International Space Station for six months.

The photograph is taken to the west of France and the UK, looking down the English Channel in the middle.

Paris is the brightest part of the picture, with Jersey and Guernsey seen as two small bright dots in the middle.
