Strange case of the runaway kites

A young man contacted OTS News with a set of photos he’s taken asking if anyone had seen lost kites flying across Ainsdale beach, which were not under any control. He stated.

“I have been to Ainsdale beach this morning and seen something very strange. A number of kites were just floating over the beach, some of them very high others floating over the sea as well. They were also changing altitude.”

“An easterly wind was blowing at about 9mph so if they were attached to a long string then they would have gone out to sea.”
