I wish to lend my support to the excellent Diane Westwood who is campaigning to stop the dangers to animals and pollution caused by balloons and lanterns.
I would add that not only are standard balloons dangerous but the worst danger of all is from the lanterns that use flames to cause them to rise.
These not only can set fire to buildings and farmland but the metal after they have landed is a danger to wildlife and humans.
These lanterns must be banned.
