Exclusive Video: Base Jumper in Central Birmingham

Heart has been given exclusive video footage which shows a base jumper landing in Birmingham City Centre.

The incident happened at around 1am on Sunday Morning in the skies above Holloway Head.

The video shows the dark shape of a parachutist coming out of the night sky, before narrowly missing a car as he makes a landing on the road.

It's thought the jumpers had launched from the Sentinel Towers opposite the Radisson Blu Hotel.

Arran Burrows saw what happened and told Heart 'We were coming out of a bar on our way home and the next thing we saw was a guy land with a parachute on the side of the road. We were amazed, you don't expect that on a Sunday night. It was like something from a film.'

'There were 3 jumpers, the last one jumped at an angle right in our view, it was spectacular it really was, but he nearly hit a car when he landed.'
