Hot air balloons have taken off in a mass ascent from Bristol, with 43 teams taking part. The Fiesta Flypast event over the city took place as a socially distanced alternative to the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta. Organisers urged the public to enjoy the spectacle from their doorsteps and gardens, rather than gathering to watch take-off or landing. Up, up and away! #Bristol, we are go!
