What was this loud boom in Weston, UK? A meteor or an asteroid?

Did a comet or asteroid cause the bang over Weston? This is actually what believe residents of Weston as some witnessed a sudden flash and loud bang in the early hours of Monday morning.

The loud noise made some windows vibrate at around 1.20am on Monday, and many reported a sudden flash of light before hearing the thundering bang.

No RAF airplanes went sonic on that day. Moreover, you would not get a flash with a sonic boom. No lightning strikes were recorded over the whole UK on Sunday night and Monday morning. So astronomers said it may have been a comet or asteroid explosion while entering the atmosphere at about 35,000-55,000 miles an hour.
