An investigation has been launched after an artillery round flew off course at army firing ranges in Wiltshire.
The round landed at Patney near Devizes approximately 5 miles from where it was originally launched.
It flew over two villages and exploded after landing in a farmer's field, leaving a hole around 6 feet in diameter and 2 feet deep.
