An unfortunate motorist had a big shock last Friday night when a wheel fell off as he was driving his Fiat Punto, bringing the vehicle to an abrupt stop.

The incident happened around 7pm on Friday evening at the traffic lights on Arbroath’s busy Cairnie road junction, (near The Calden petrol station).

Police were present to divert vehicles around the incident. No one was injured, and a recovery vehicle was called out to remove the Fiat Punto.
