Footage has emerged of a hot air balloon landing just metres off a busy road in Market Harborough, UK on July 8.

"We were returning home from a friends BBQ in Leicester travelling along the A6 Bypass near Market Harborough when suddenly a low flying balloon appeared amongst the roadside trees skimming about 5ft above the ground and crossing the busy road," the filmer wrote online.

"t was obvious the pilot was forced to make the landing and the basket containing 2 passengers hit the field gate post slightly tipping the basket."

"We did hear all on board were safe if not slightly shaken. I dare not imagine what the outcome would have been had a high vehicle had come around the corner," he added.
