A dedicated event to run through fields of wheat has caused backlash among farmers.
In response to Theresa May’s tale-telling of running through fields of wheat as a young girl, the British public are set to cause carnage on June 23 in a similar uproar.
A Facebook event read: “Come join us for a cheeky frolick through fields of wheat, the farmers will love it.”
More than 50,000 people have shown interest.
Posts on the social media group show videos of people running through farmers’ fields.
Comedian Russell Brand also posted a video of himself taking part.
But Welsh agriculture student Ruth Chohan hit back with her own two-week Facebook event, Defend the wheat fields, for affected farmers to report any ‘anti-Tory protests’ or suspicious activity to police.
She slammed the ‘absolutely damaging attack’ for its potential to cost rural businesses money they ‘cannot afford to lose’.
“Prevention is better than cure,” Ms Chohan said.
“They are out damaging farmer’s crops and I expect if they do enough damage, the outcome will be increased prices of wheat.”
