A jet's sonic boom, meteors, fireworks... or UFOs? Listen to the explosions that were heard from Devon to Aberdeen last night - which have stumped the MoD - and decide for yourself

Last night, Britons from Aberdeen to Devon were left baffled by a series of mysterious explosions which shook windows and disturbed sleeping children.

Hundreds of Twitter users reported the sounds between around 9pm and 11pm last night, with many describing the noise as sounding like 'distant fireworks'.

But despite suggestions of RAF jets, meteors and aliens flooding the social media site today, no one has been able to explain what was heard. Even the MoD has said it is stumped.

Now a recording of the 'loud bangs', taken by a woman as she sat at home in Croydon, south London, might shed light on what is really behind the unexplained noise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sounds like either a fireworks factory or a munitions plan burned down! :)
