Farmer sues over scared chickens

A German farmer has gone to court after claiming a hot air balloon scared his chickens.

Johann Stresen, 47, told a court in Osnabrueck that his 20,000 birds were so frightened they stopped laying eggs.

He is claiming £18,000 in damages because the Dutch hot air balloon flew just 75ft over his farm instead of the 350ft required by law.
