The world's biggest airship could soon be leaving its home in Bedfordshire.

The Airlander 10 airship is 26 metres tall - around the same height as four stacked double decker buses.

It is currently based at Cardington's shed one, but the company behind the project Hybrid Air Vehicles has confirmed that the Airlander will be moving on.

A new site is expected to be announced in the next few weeks.

Airlander 10 is designed to stay airborne for up to five days at a time to fulfil a wide range of communication and survey roles, as well as carrying cargo and passengers.
