STUDENT Andrew Huff from Morley was on cloud nine after his carefully planned project to launch a teddy bear into space passed off without a hitch.

The aspiring aeronautical engineer, (main picture) who is studying at The Grammar School, Leeds, devised a scheme to collect weather information at high altitude, using a Raspberry Pi computer and a weather balloon.

The launch took place at Bolton Abbey and the balloon, which reached an altitude of 26.7km, landed near Clitheroe after a flight of more than one-and-a-half-hours.
