Shooting star in North Essex

In the early hours of this morning at 00:30 GMT I witnessed an unusal shooting star.  It was seen just North of Chelmsford, Essex with a South-to-North direction.  It lasted a couple of seconds and was yellowish in colour.  Its width was quite large and it was visible through the clouds.  What was it?  A satellite in polar orbit breaking up, perhaps?

Update: I wonder if it was this Chinese satellite which failed to launch, but the timing is three hours earlier?
