Wheels come off for Kwik Fit customer - literally!

Leon Poultney

A Kwik Fit branch in Kent has apologised after a customer's front wheel fell off on her way home from having work carried out there.

Tracey Cooper had just collected her Saab 9-3 from the tyre & exhaust chain's Ashford branch having had two tyres fitted and an MOT test, when she heard a grinding noise from the front end. So she turned around to head back to the branch – which was when her nearside front wheel detached itself completely from the car, stranding her in the middle of a busy road junction.
