A UFO mystery has been sparked after a flashing light was spotted on BBC breakfast television.
Viewers watched in amazement as the white probe-like object appeared on the Look North morning show.
It was described as "intriguing" and a "genuine mystery" by UFO expert Nick Pope.
The UFO was captured on a webcam on Tuesday as it passed over the Gateshead Millennium Bridge on the River Tyne.
Viewers spotted the object when pictures from the weather camera were used as a backdrop on the breakfast show behind presenter Colin Briggs.
Former MoD UFO investigator Mr Pope said: "At first I thought it was a bird, but the slowed down footage seems to rule this out."
"It's an intriguing film and a genuine mystery."
