Jailed: Brit who fought against ISIS

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY STEPHEN HAY­WARD

WELLIE DONE UP, up and ar­ray! A daz­zling flight of 170 hot air bal­loons rises in to the sky yes­ter­day set­ting a new UK record for the num­ber aloft at the same time.

Per­fect weather helped crews smash Bri­tain’s pre­vi­ous best of 130.

The colour­ful in­flat­a­bles flew from Lon­gleat House, Wilt­shire, as part of the wildlife park’s Sky Sa­fari event which ends tonight.

Crazy-shaped bal­loons in­cluded Sim­baloo – in hon­our of one of Lon­gleat’s lions – an owl, a wolf, pen­guins...and even a huge Hunter wellie.

Trivia fans: The world record is 443 bal­loons, set in Cham­b­ley-Bus­sières, France, on July 26, 2015.
