A sixth person has contacted the Herald to report a UFO sighting in the Honiton area.

Margaret Lewis, curator of Allhallows Museum in the town, saw nine orange lights from the window of her office between 10.30pm and 10.37pm last Saturday.

"They were all moving up and away from St Cyres Hill," she said.

"There was no sound and they were all moving quite slowly."

Margaret is hoping to see the lights again - so she can film them.

Previous sightings have been in Honiton, Combe Raleigh, Payhembury and Sidbury.
