A huge metal section of the combine harvester swung across the pavement demolishing the garden wall of a property in St Benets Court, which belongs to deputy mayor of Tenterden, Cllr Sue Ferguson.

She said: “If anyone had been standing in my garden or next door’s garden, or on the pavement they would have been killed or seriously injured.
