THERE are reports this morning that a large bang heard in Cwmbran last night was part of a meteorite shower hitting the area.
Argus readers are reporting hearing what they initially thought was an explosion at around midnight.
There was a meteorite shower reported over east Wales and west Shropshire, and it is thought that a piece of meteor fell in the the area.
One woman in Newport told the Argus she heard the noise and thought there had been a lorry crash. Gwent Police said they had three calls over the boom.
