Orange light dropped very fast over Gloucestershire UK

Driving back from Stroud to Dursley in my car, my six year old son pointed out what we first thought was a police helicopter hovering somewhere over the river Severn.

At first I thought it was odd - as it wasn't the typical white / blue colour lamp that they use, more of a orangy red.

I pulled the car over so we could watch for a bit. It continued to hover and slightly move towards the direction of Stroud. Suddenly it dropped directly downward, very very fast and unfortunately disappeared behind the hill. There was no gradual acceleration down- It just dropped down very quickly.

I don't know if it was a helicopter or plane... if so, the wreckage will be between Cam and Berkley. I have not seen the orange light since it disappeared.
