VIDEO: Awkward landing for Woody Woodpecker balloon

A viewer has sent us this footage of one of the hot air balloons having a difficult landing in Bristol. Tim Pike was watching the Bristol Balloon Fiesta mass ascent last night on Durdham Downs when he saw the Woody Woodpecker balloon on a very low approach.

Tim says it nearly hit an ice cream van, people and cars but no one was hurt.
