TORRENTIAL rain on Saturday night caused a landslide at a local holiday park which dislodged a caravan.

The incident at Pettycur Bay Holiday Park, Kinghorn, saw a caravan come free from its pitch and slide down the hill, hitting a car and another caravan below.

Fortunately no one was in the caravan which moved.

But a woman who was in the caravan which was hit had a lucky escape.;

No one was injured in the incident.

Heavy rain

One regular at the site, who asked not to be named, told the Press: “One of the caravans slid down the hill and hit another one during the heavy rain on Saturday.

‘‘ Thankfully no one was hurt.

“There would have been two children and their father in the caravan which slid had it not been for the threat of thunder and lightning.

“The little girl was so frightened of lightning they had decided to go home early.

“There was a woman in the bedroom of the one that was hit, but fortunately she was okay.

“It’s worrying to think what could have happened.

Quietly

“Everyone I’ve spoken to has said it all happened so quietly, none of them heard anything while it was sliding down until it hit the caravan and car.

“I’m not good at judging distances, but it had slid quite far to get where it ended up.

“The caravan it hit was on Baxter Road so it had come from the road above that.”
