THE funeral of the Scottish tourist who was killed when a hot air balloon trip ended in tragedy is to take place on Thursday.

Hospital receptionist Yvonne Rennie, 48, died when the balloon caught fire and exploded during a sightseeing trip in Luxor, Egypt, almost two weeks ago.

Yvonne’s husband Mike, 49, was described as her “soulmate” in the death notice.

He was one of only two survivors and will lead the mourners at Perth Crematorium at 11.30am on Thursday.
