The chief executive officer of the Wildlife Trusts, Craig Bennett, was ridiculed after he tweeted an image of a sloped Cambridgeshire field which claimed ploughing was responsible for flooding each winter.

Farmers slam Wildlife Trusts' boss over 'inaccurate' tweet

Farmers quickly pointed out the tweet was factually incorrect, since the field had been drilled not ploughed, and criticised Mr Bennett for his blatant lack of knowledge.

Farmers Guardian reader and farmer Richard Harland called for Mr Bennett to issue an apology for the post.

Mr Harland said: “This misinformation is hugely damaging for the whole agricultural industry, and for someone in a position of chief executive officer of one of the biggest countryside organisations in the UK to be able to use his platform to spread such information, maybe he has a grudge against the agricultural industry, or perhaps he is just incompetent.”
