make balloon releases illegal in the UK and carry the same penalty as littering/flytipping

I would like to stop the idea that mass balloon releases are good way to remember somebody or something, once released these balloons take decades to break down and most likely before then are eaten by wildlife, turtles, whales, fish and deer are among the worst affected. They are a blight on our countryside, cause electrical failures and are not just a pritty and harmless way to remember somebody or celebrate an event, it is mass littering.
