Northern lights illuminate night sky above Britain

A stunning display of the Northern Lights danced in the night sky above the UK on Sunday, 26 February.

This footage shows the beautiful scene that night as the Aurora Borealis illuminated overhead.

Usually, the Northern Lights can only be seen from Scotland and parts of northern England.

However, on Sunday, parts of southern England as far down as Kent and Cornwall reported sightings.

It is expected that stargazers will be able to catch them again on Monday night.
