A "FIREBALL" was spotted over Worcester this evening.

Joseph Smith, of Beaconhill Drive, St John's, had stepped outside for a cigarette at about 5.30pm when he saw a large ball of orange.

"It was the size of the moon," he said. "I've never seen anything like it. It looked like a fireball."

Mr Smith said the unidentified object looked to be over the racecourse direction.
