Lisa Auty posted on Facebook: “Due to all the building work behind Humberston Avenue the local deer are losing their homes and venturing onto the road resulting in accidents.

“There has been four [incidents] recently!

“This happened to a friend and her daughter yesterday and the deer landed on [the driver’s daughter’s] lap!

“Thankfully they are both ok obviously the deer isn’t!

“Reduce your speed on Humberston Avenue and be deer aware!”
