A glass window "flew" out of its frame and "smashed" near the entrance of a supermarket in Swanley.

A window panel from the roof of Asda Swanley Superstore in London Road reportedly smashed into pieces on the ground after heavy winds blew it out of its frame at about 3pm yesterday, January 4.

The glass landed in a pedestrian area where mother Lily Anne McEwan was pushing her one-year-old daughter along in a pram. 

She said: "It was so scary. It landed right by me and my daughter, and she started screaming and crying. 

"Security came rushing out telling us to move. My daughter was really upset."

The concerned mother said it was lucky nobody was seriously hurt. 

According to witness Michael Cook, staff acted quickly to sweep the fragments following the freak incident.

He said: "The tinted panel flew through the air and smashed into fragments as it hit the block paved pedestrian zone.

"Fortunately nobody was injured and Asda staff and management acted swiftly to isolate the area, pushing shopping trolleys to surround the affected area."

The glass was installed near to the main entrance of the store.

A weather warning was in place in Kent yesterday, with forecasters predicting strong winds for the county.

Asda has been approached for a comment by News Shopper.
