Very hard to give an idea of magnitude due to the cloud cover, but when you compare it to Mars , visible just inside the halo around the moon, to the right and down of where the meteor ends, it was very bright.
Hi William The video was taken at 21:19:20 bst on 11th april 2014 The camera is located in Weston Coyney, Stoke on Trent and points up at about 60 degrees and just very slightly north of east. The view is very wide covering from just west of the pole star on the left of the frame, to, as you could see on the video, past Mars (which was just east of south at the time) on the right of the frame.

Yes, I can confirm that this is indeed the same one as imaged by NEMETODE cameras located in Ravensmoor and Leeds - will try and get something up on the website tonight.
The NEMETODE PCs are synchronised to an NTP time server and have this event clocked at 20:19:10 GMT (ie 21:19:10 BST). The following report appears on the Armagh firebal report page:
•Date: 2014-Apr-11 •Time: 9.20pm •Location: Haydock, St Helens, Merseyside •Report: Streak of white light behind light cloud cover travelling North to South just under moon. Estimate at about 30-40 degrees above horizon. Visible for two seconds. I was facing due South, so it appeared on my left. No sound heard. Visibly disintegrated. Faded away to nothing. Didn't seem to be traveling at a steep inclination, more horizontal. Maybe somewhere between Liverpool and Manchester.
