More than 100,000 people have signed an NFU petition calling on the government to ban sky lanterns amid rising concerns about livestock health and fire risks.

The threat of fires posed by sky lanterns landing in fields of crops or grassland has been brought into sharp focus, especially amid climate extremes.

The petition urges the government to follow the lead of hundreds of local councils and introduce a nationwide ban in England and Wales.
