A HAMPSHIRE camper claims to have spotted a UFO that was travelling "faster than a plane" over the New Forest.

Grandmother Jasmine Percy was packing up her tent to leave Ashurst campsite when she spotted an orange oval disc shaped object that appeared to be on fire.

Mrs Percy, 60, a childcare worker, from Farnborough, said: "My first reaction was good grief it looks like there's a plane on fire. There was no noise or no sound and it was travelling faster than a plane.

"I have no idea what it was but it seemed to be coming from Brockenhurst and heading towards Southampton. It was very bright and visible for about a minute."
