This hilarious video shows a man falling over a fence in Thornbury.

CCTV footage shows a man, looking the worse for wear, attempt to climb over a fence outside Shelly's Cafe at the top of St Mary Street.

Perhaps in his haste to get out of the rain, the man falls head over heels and into the plants on the other side.

After lying on the ground for the best part of a minute, he staggers to his feet before heading on his way.

The incident occurred late on Saturday night and was shared on Facebook by Shelly Shapland, owner of the long-running Shelly's Cafe.

"One too many I think," she said.

"Must have thought he was at the grand national."
