A KIRKCALDY solicitors office had an unwelcome visitor recently when a car smashed through its front window.

Luckily nobody was injured when the vehicle, an unoccupied silver Jaguar, made its impromptu visit to W & AS Bruce.

It is believed the car, which had been parked in front of Kitty’s nightclub at the corner of Wemyssfield and Hunter Street, had been left without its handbrake on and had rolled forward and into the large plate glass window.

Amanda Traynor (40), a paralegal with the firm, was left shaken, but unhurt by the experience.

“I was at the photocopier just next to my desk, which is feet from the window when I heard an almighty crash,” she explained.

“At first I thought someone must have kicked in the window, but I looked out and saw the car bonnet sticking through the broken glass. My first thought was to check if anyone was inside, but there was nobody there.

“Everyone in the street was looking in, and then I saw a young girl on the phone quite upset and realised it was her who had been in the car. She had parked and was popping into the bank when it happened.

“It was really lucky that there was nobody driving on the road at that time, and also very lucky that we had no clients waiting to see someone as the waiting area is right in front of the window and someone could have been seriously hurt by the glass.

“The boss’ car had been parked in front of the office until just minutes before, but he had just left to go out or it would have smashed into that.”
