Photographer Stephen Cheatley of Blackpool said: ''We had an amazing aurora display in the UK last night. I had to get away from the bright lights of Blackpool though to get a good chance of seeing them, so I went to Oakenclough near Scorton, in the Forest of Bowland Lancashire.

''I did not see anything at all straight away, but soon the whole northern sky lit up. I thought it would be a good idea to take a selfie with a stunning aurora as a backdrop!''
