I was doing my paper round and the sky was covered with low cloud. I looked up and saw a whitish, glowing, cylindrical object with four bands of bright red lights spaced along it's length. It was spinning in an anti-clockwise direction (just like an electric drill going in reverse) The craft was travelling approximately in a North Westerly direction. It was travelling very fast and disappeared within about 10 seconds. There was no sound and the craft was below the cloud level.
