Relatively new to the UK they really do produce a spectacular sight in the night sky.

However, The One Show last night highlighted the campaign to ask for a government review of the sale of these Chinese lanterns or sky lanterns owing to the safety issues that they raise.

The programme highlighted the case of a little boy who was burnt from wax falling from the lantern once it was released into the sky. He suffered extensive burns to his face.

The Farmers Union are also calling for them to be banned as they can cause serious damage to livestock who are prone to eating the lanterns once they fall to earth. Interestingly these lanterns are banned in Australia.
If you or a family member have been injured  by a Chinese lantern please do contact us.
