STORM Brendan tossed a tree into the path of a car on the A3102 near Tockenham.

The occupants of the car, which sustained significant damage to its windscreen, were said to be very shaken but unhurt in the incident on Monday evening.

A passing driver got out his chainsaw, reduced the tree to firewood and helped Royal Wootton Bassett Police reopen the road in less than 20 minutes.
