A woman in Norfolk has called for a ban on balloon releases after she found a calf choking.
Cait Clarke, a cattle farmer in Runham, near Great Yamouth, said she found the calf chewing on a balloon and that without her intervention the young animal would have died.
The balloon and 10 others found in the field were featured in a remembrance day balloon release carrying armistice messages.
Ms Clarke posted wrote on Facebook: 'It's a lovely idea to remember a passed loved one, and my thoughts are with the family, but I wish people would think about the repercussions of where these things can end up.
