A DEER was injured when it struck a car on the B4042 Malmesbury Road last night.

Officers from Royal Wootton Bassett and Cricklade Police cleared the road after the incident.

A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: "The road is now clear, thankfully no humans injuries however the same can't be said for the deer. Tonight we have attended horses near to the A3102, 50+ cows in the road and this. Please be careful on our rural roads, you never know what's around the next corner.”
