Ball of flame moving over North Leicestershire UK

At first glance it looked like an aircraft on fire but there was no sound, it was moving fairly fast in a south easterly direction. It was just a bright flame, no flashing lights.

I tried filming it but the footage isn't great, I couldn't get a focus on it. It dissapeared over my house so I ran around to the front but it was gone. It could be something like a meteor I suppose but I've never seen one so I don't know.
