A VINTAGE Bentley, which had taken four years to restore, had the shine taken off it at Dogmersfield on Sunday afternoon.

The owner was driving his pride and joy home to nearby Crondall when it was in collision with another car.

According to onlookers he looked devastated as he waited for his dented car to be hauled away.

Hart Councillor Mark Fullbrook, who took this picture, said: "It was a miracle no-one was killed. It's not unusual for people to be walking just where the car ended up."
