Snowballs, suicidal ducks and Susan Boyle CDs have all been blamed for damage to cars.

In the duck incident, a mallard flew clean through the windscreen of a woman's car, the Autoglass company reported.

The company was also called out last year to a driver who needed assistance after reporting he had cracked his windscreen using a Susan Boyle CD to scrape away ice.

In another case, a woman complained that "an evil pheasant" had stalked her and attacked her husband's car, while another driver needed help after accidentally firing his shotgun inside his vehicle.
