High winds brought a tree down onto a moving car on the A35 near Kilmington yesterday afternoon (Sunday March 29).

One of the occupants needed medical treatment at the scene, although it is not thought that anyone was seriously hurt.

Two fire crews attended the incident, at around 3pm, and pulled the car out from beneath the tree using a winch and small tools and made it safe.

The road was closed for several hours while the debris was removed.
