Hot Air Ballon stolen

A rare hot air balloon and trailer have been stolen while outside an address in Reading Road, Farnborough, on Sunday, September 9.
The trailer and its contents, which are easily recognisable, were stolen over a very short time span between 9.50pm and 10.05pm.
The Linstran 90A hot air balloon, worth £25,000, is of a Union Jack design and is one of only two of its kind in the country.
The galvanised steel trailer, a Staffordshire clam shell, single axle, with a bright yellow clam shell lid and silver/grey plastic wheel trims, is only one of 30 made in the last 15 years.
Anyone who saw the trailer being stolen, or has any information regarding the location of the balloon and the trailer, should contact Aldershot police station on 0845 045 45 45 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
