The pink playhouse blocks the entrance to the car park at Bentley railway station after being lifted up by high winds.

Gusts blew the pink plastic play den into cars at Bentley railway station last night - but no-one was injured in the incident.

Commuter Tim Ward, who witnessed the drama said: "I was just walking across the car park when this pink playhouse came skidding across the road and smashed into the side of a car.

"Fortunately, there didn't appear to be any damage to the car and the playhouse came off worse, breaking into pieces. I'm not sure where it came from, whether it was blown out of a garden or an old one that had been dumped by the side of the road."
