Balloon found in Ullswater 'paraglider crash' search

A search took place yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon after a report that a paraglider had possibly ditched into Ullswater.

Mountain rescue teams, Coastguard members and an RAF helicopter were called to the lake shortly after 3pm.

A large balloon was found in the water and it was concluded that this had been mistaken for a paraglider.

Teams continued searching after its discovery as a precaution but were stood down at 4.50pm.
