Balloon travels from Derby to Australia

A balloon released by a schoolboy in Derby has travelled 10,000 miles across the world, and has landed in Australia.

6-year-old Joshua Blackaby set the balloon off in December when his school became an academy.

He has now had a letter from a girl in Sydney who has found the balloon and tag in her garden.
