NFUS welcomes sky lantern ban in Argyll

SEVEN more Scottish local authorities – including Argyll and Bute – have now banned the release of sky lanterns and helium balloons over their land, but the National Farmers’ Union Scotland (NFUS) is calling on 17 other councils to take action.

Ahead of bonfire night last year, the NFUS wrote to all of Scotland’s councillors of those local authorities which did not have bans in place.
