Strange object over the skies of Morden, Surrey, UK

I saw something at approx 7pm this evening when i was out having a cigarette. I called out 'what is that' ran in and grabbed my camera hoping it would still be visible when i went back out. its a Canon PowerShot A590 and the first clearer picture was taken on normal. The rest are on 16x zoom. Interesting the rest are all dark and you can just about make out the object. Fading daylight but skies still blue at this time.

My partner heard me shout out and came rushing down the stairs asking what was up, I told him and he took a while to locate the object and then ran in and got my binoculars that are in the kitchen drawer, he had trouble locating it through the binoculars but when he did he said that it was coloured green and red. He suspects they were heliem balloons.

I thought i'd report it anyway as you never know. I think id go with helium balloons too as an alternative to a UFO.

As an aside the aircraft in the vicinity was a plane on the landing path of Gatwick Airport.
