May unhurt in 'Top Gear' airship stunt

Top Gear presenter James May was left unhurt after a stunt that involved an airship crash landed.

The host had been filming a segment for the
BBC Two series when the craft was blown off course, BBC News reports.

A caravan was attached to the bright orange blimp, which was being flown across Cambridgeshire. Strong wind gusts blew it away from its scheduled cricket pitch destination into a farmer's field located near the A428.

Emergency services were on hand, though were not utilised following the accident.
A spokeswoman for the show confirmed that May escaped without injuries, saying: "Viewers will have to wait until the next series to find out what happens."

It was reported earlier that Australian Top Gear host Steve Pizzati flipped over a race car while shooting the programme.
