A CAR ended up hanging from telephone wires after crashing into a pole in the New Forest.

John Paine, 62, from Poole, who took these pictures of the scene, said: “We were driving through the forest at the time and this car had got caught up in the telephone wires.

“I have no idea how it happened but we heard one of the police officers say it was one of the weirdest things they had seen in 20 years.

“We thought it was a film set to be honest.

“It’s not the sort of thing you see every day, a car like that.”

It happened on the A35 between Christchurch and Lyndhurst on Friday.

Police said they were called at 8.15am and that nobody was injured.
