A ‘mystery’ hot air balloon with what appears to have a vehicle seen attached to it has been spotted passing over some parts of Wrexham this afternoon…
NEW: Thanks to Sheryl Bishop for sharing this video with us of the actual lift off and filming via the helicopter. Sheryl told us: “The presenters and film crew from C4’s Experimental were there along with with award winning balloon makers Lindstrand and people holding Fosters signs”.
The white hot air balloon has been seen flying over parts of Wrexham this afternoon with Wrexham.com unofficially hearing a possibly nonsense rumour saying it could linked to filming of a beer advert nearby.
Earlier this afternoon Wrexham.com looked out the window and saw the unusual object flying over the area so asked others to confirm we were not losing the plot! We asked our Twitter followers if they had seen anything similar
Anyone seen an odd hot air balloon in the skies ?

Adding to the mystery this factoid was added in by Josh:
Sian said: “Anyone else spotted a white balloon floating to east of pentre, chirk? Not a hot air balloon. Something dangling from it with a Helicopter buzzing around it. Just wondering what it is if anyone knows. Thank you.”
The image featured above, sent to Wrexham.com by Tricia on Twitter shows what looks like a van hanging from the hot air balloon as it passed over Chirk shortly after 4:30pm.
We are open to theories as to why it was flying overhead, so let us know yours via the usual methods!
