Prize-winning 330k flight by balloon from Scotland to Barnetby (205 miles)
A balloon launched as part of a Scottish hotel's New Year's Day celebrations has been found by a Barnetby resident - 330km away from its original launch location.
The Angus Hotel, in the Scottish town of Blairgowrie, held a New Year balloon launch that saw 93 balloons launched by guests.
The winning balloon was found by a Mr Wright of Barnetby, and both he and Mr Murray, the guest that launched the well-travelled balloon, will now receive £100 each in hotel vouchers as their prize.
Murray Scott, managing director of Scott Hotels commented: "It's amazing how far these balloons have travelled and, when you consider the weather challenges the UK has faced since the turn of the year, it's amazing they are even still in the country!
