Ruscombe valley balloon drama

Here are a selection of snaps from the near disaster in our valley a week or more ago now. Mike Gallagher took these pics as the drama unfolded (reprinted here with permission) - that is not the Mike Gallagher of Sonic Hedgehog fame but rather our very own Bread Street photographer - in fact see his excellent website is here:

Lots of great local photos on the website - particularly liked his wet street scene in Stroud and some beautiful ones of the Ruscombe valley - anyhow I'm getting off topic - this balloon seemed to get into trouble several times coming very low over the valley indeed then lifting again only to seemingly hit trees before rising over the houses along The Plain at Whiteshill.

Does anyone know the full story?
