Jimmy - I recorded a bright display low to the NE from Chelmsford this morning starting at around 0100 UTC so  I expect it was the same event. Here and here. There haven't been any really spectacular displays visible from here yet this season.

Nick, thank you for those links - always good to see that it's visible further south. There are reports coming from Hungary this evening, July 5-6. Completely overcast for me tonight.
