A local Meteorology spokesperson opined that ”It looks like a it’s just a persisting circular contrail (a condensation trail of ice crystals produced by jet engines at high altitude).
The circular shape may have been caused by a 'contrail' - ice crystals produced by jet engines at high altitude that have left a condensation trail. However, another explanation is an unusual cloud formation known as a fallstreak hole or hole punch cloud - a large circular gap that can appear in clouds and is often mistaken for a UFO. They are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice particles. If it is not a cloud formation or a plane - and ruling out the arrival of little green men - perhaps it was created when Fearless Felix Baumgartner re-entered the earth's atmosphere after his leap from the edge of space on Monday.

Look like photoshoped.
Oh, where are the birds?
Supernatural hotspot: UFO investigator Sharon Larkin found ten dead birds in her garden the same day Mr Sherwood saw the UFO outline, which is nearby to Sellafield nuclear power plant (pictured)
As an aside which may or may not help explain the formation in the above photo and or at least the appearance of the dead birds, the dailymailgoes on to report that the area in which the sighting took place also comprises a wide range of nuclear facilities, including redundant facilities associated with early defence work, as well as operating facilities associated with the Magnox reprocessing programme, the Thermal Oxide Reprocessing Plant, the Sellafield Mox plant and a range of waste treatment plants.
