Balloon released by UK schoolboy floats 10,545 miles from Derby to Australia

Delighted: Joshua   A balloon released into the sky by a schoolboy in England has been found more than 10,000 miles away in Australia. Joshua Blackaby, six, was thrilled when a letter arrived from a girl in Sydney saying she found the balloon and its tag in a tree in her garden. Joshua said: “I can’t believe it went all that way. I am looking forward to writing back to the girl.” Pupils from Joshua’s primary school launched 300 balloons together in December – and some made it as far as The Netherlands and Denmark.
