Stunning photos of the Perseid meteor shower

Stunning photos of the Perseid meteor shower have been released as the solar phenomenon graced our skies over the weekend.

Pictures taken from Tintern Abbey in Monmouthshire show the moon perfectly captured in the top window of the remains.

The Abbey was founded by Walter de Clare, Lord of Chepstow, on 9 May 1131, but provided a perfect vantage point for this spectacular display.

Check out some of the best photos below:
