I had been told about this by my mum a few weeks ago, my uncle and cousins had all noticed it.

When I was at my uncles yesterday, he took me to show me what he meant.

I didnt quite know what to make of it at first, it is so unreal. So I jumped into me car and drove down to Moreton beach, it is deffo a mirage, it isnt there and you can see it as far as cadburys hill!!!

My cousin said that he has seen it almost "sitting in the middle of Pasture Road" on one occasion.

Anyway, I decided to make a short video:

This is out as clear as day today!!! You can see it when you travel over the Bidston flyover, look towards Wallasey School and Squibbs and they are massive.

Went down to the shore, deffo nothing there, but I now conclude its not from Liverpool Bay.
