Terrifying footage shows the moment a hot air balloon narrowly missed houses and ended up landing in a Somerset car park with a huge thud.

The balloon was spotted reportedly looking 'in trouble' as it flew low over the motorway, but its owners at Bailey Balloons are yet to comment on what went wrong.
