A tree has collapsed on the Ashton Court Estate where the International Bristol Balloon Fiesta is currently taking place.

Viewer Abi has been walking through the site when suddenly a big tree thumped to the ground 'right by the toilets'.

It's lucky nobody was injured. It just collapsed and made a massive thump right by the toilets. Thank god nobody was trapped.
