BALLOONS were set free to remember missing children at a special event on Wednesday.

Tesco, in Riverfield Drive, Bedford, hosted the event to mark International Missing Children’s Day.

The Bedford balloon launch was attended by Ken Spooner, a Buckinghamshire man whose children were abducted and taken to live in Zambia by his former partner.

The main purpose of the day was to encourage people to remember all the missing children, not just in the UK but worldwide.
