Timelapse footage shows mass ascent at Bristol Balloon Fiesta

Improved weather conditions saw three mass ascents from the Bristol Balloon Fiesta over the weekend.

Planned ascents on Thursday and Friday had to be cancelled due to gusty conditions but the balloons took off on Saturday evening, and on Sunday morning and evening.

Organisers said 267 flights were made over the weekend and three couples used the event to get engaged.
