Fire fear for celebrations.
Caroline Bedell, Midlands director of the Country Land and Business Association, said: "While the country celebrates over the coming days, anyone who owns property will have a nervous eye in the sky in case Chinese lanterns are heading their way.
"A lantern can fly for miles and you have no control over where it lands.
"Lives have been lost and property gutted in fires started by Chinese lanterns.
"Even when the flame does go out, livestock has died after consuming the remains of the lantern."
