Work to free balloon caught on power cables

An investigation has begun after three people were rescued from a hot air balloon when it got tangled in electrical cables in the village of Bozeat near Wellingborough in Northamptonshire.

The power had to be turned off before the rescue could start on Sunday.

The balloon was left in the power lines overnight and work began to free it on Monday morning.
