What was the 'Bath UFO'?

First there were the reports of a loud bang, heard over much of Southern and Central England, then the slightly suspect MOD explanation that it was the result of a sonic boom from two Typhoon aircraft breaking the soundbarrier in a mistake emergency distress call from a small helicopter.

Now photos by forums member dazzM and Neil Denny are online of what appears to be a mysterious object that looks nothing like a helicopter maneuvering over Bath with two Eurofighter Typhoons nearby. The two jets were reported to have circled the object
