Longleat is attempting to break a UK record for the most balloons in the sky at the same time tomorrow morning.

More than 150 balloons of all shapes and sizes will rise over the Wiltshire estate from 6:30am.

It won't be just animals on the ground - as part of the three day Sky Safari, visitors looking up will see the Longleat lion balloon Simbaloo, three penguins, a wolf, a donkey and an owl.

Organisers say there will also be a new mystery hot air balloon.
