A MAN in the UK saw his dreams of impressing his girlfriend vanish as a gust of wind pulled a balloon concealing an engagement ring from his hand.

He chased the runaway balloon for two hours in his car but it soon vanished, along with the 6,000 Pound Sterling (7,600 euro) ring. When he told his girlfriend she went mad and now she refuses to speak to him until he gives her another ring. His plan had been to give her a pin to burst the balloon as he popped the question.
