Don't crash your Audi A4 into a field full of livestock - and then run off...

One farmer in Ampthill, Bedfordshire, was forced to take matters into his own hands after a driver crashed an Audi A4 in a field of his livestock, before fleeing the scene.

 

The BCH Road Police team captured these fantastic images of the farmer removing the vehicle from his land - and it wasn’t very delicately.

"Enquiries on-going to trace driver."

 

Farmer Ken Mackenzie replied to the post: "I’ve done this before, with police permission, just couldn’t stop laughing.

 

"The car was totalled by the time I was done. No livestock hurt before, during or after the event. Got £50 scrappage for my troubles. Good day had by all, except for the idiot who’d done a runner."
