Leicestershire Police received several calls from members of the public last night thinking a plane was on fire in the skies above Husbands Bosworth near Lutterworth.

People filmed what was going on, but police discovered the flames were, in fact, from fireworks attached to a motor glider which had taken off from a nearby airfield.

Husbands Bosworth Gliding Centre confirmed the plane was part of a display team, that were practising.
