Rachel Gumm won the chance to report for Heart on Friday's Heart Breakfast. She was the first person down the Bristol Slide; dressed us a duck Rachel slid down the  the 90-metre long water slide on Park Street in style! 

Thousands packed Park Street to enjoy the sunshine and watch 360 randomly picked people slip and slide down on grey lilos.
