THIS is the scene following a hot air balloon’s dramatic descent into Tring.

The candid snap was caught on film by photographer Tony Firshman of Longfield Road after the balloon landed in the grounds of Francis House Preparatory School at around 8.30pm on Saturday.

He said: “The balloon seemed to hover above the town for ages as there was no wind.

“The pilot seemed to do a very good job of recovering from the situation. Putting the balloon down in the school field, considering Tring is quite a dense town, was a skilful manoeuvre.”
