light flashes over liverpool

At about the time stated above on the boundary of the above two districts the flashes were seen in the sky. They lasted for about half of one second each and had less than half a second in between them. The sky was obscured by clouds at the time so all that could be seen was the illumination of the clouds. It was similar to lightning but there was no sound and although the frequency was consistent with lightning the duraion mentioned above makes it inconsitent with normal weather patterns in this region. The lack of sound also makes it unlikley to be lightning. The light seemed to originate from an easterly direction possibly just beyond Walton Jail. The light was so bright that surrounding buildings were alluminated as if it were daytime.
