Roads were closed and electricity cables were switched off when a huge Kentucky Fried Chicken balloon became stuck in the Cotswolds last night.

Fire crews were called to Kempsford near Fairford following reports that the giant balloon had got tangled in electricity cables.

The road was closed through Kempsford and the area was cordoned off to avoid causing danger to motorists.

Southern Electric were also called to the scene and staff isolated the electric cables so fire fighters could safely untangle the balloon.

Crews spent two hours at the scene.
