Fast moving Light seen near Heathrow Airport

Near Heathrow Airport approx 10 miles, in Isleworth in the Borough of Hounslow, West London. I looked outside my window and I saw a light, which at the time I thought was an aircraft travelling left to right in the direction of Heathrow airport, but it flew very fast much faster than any other plane, which would not be allowed to fly that fast even if they could because of the distance it is to Heathrow Airport due to speed regualtions, laws etc. It was not a fighter jet because I know and I have seen them fly and this thing flew much faster than one. Also the object was very bright much brighter than lights from planes which I saw near it (next to flight path) but it was much further away than the commercial planes and it had brighter lights. Unlike the planes it which have several lights, it did not have any it was emitting light from itself; it looked slightly less bright than a star. It could not have been a comet because the object was flying parallel at an average speed and then it suddenly (not gradually) increased in speed. It was definatley not a plane because living under a flight path for all my life I can distinguish between a jumbo jet to a unconventional looking hazy light.

Other planes were in the vicinity of the object but they were going into land on the airport or had just taken off. This aircraft was flying to the direction of the planes taking off (rough guess 20 miles+) but it would have been opposite them when taking off.

Note: In an UK Ministry of Defence report this area was reported as a high UFO spotting area.
