A runaway tractor at Burghley rolled down a hill and into the car park, causing considerable damage to at least two parked vehicles.

The tractor was being used for the repair of a fence after a rider's fall when it rolled away without its driver, picking up speed down the hill.

The damage to cars has been put at thousands of dollars.

Spectators were reportedly yelling for people to get out of the way as the tractor made its way towards the car park.
