Hot-air balloons over Manchester city centre (video)

Hot-air balloons over manchester city centre

On Tuesday and Wednesday this week, just as the sun was going down, several hot-air balloons took off from next to Sportscity (the 2002 Commonwealth Games stadium) and drifted across the sky towards the west of the city.
