Furious Farmer Uses Tractor To Flip Car Blocking His Gate

Furious Farmer Uses Tractor To Flip Car Blocking His Gate

You don't mess with a farmer and their land...

A furious farmer flipped a car with his tractor and pushed it down the road after it blocked his gate. Watch here:

Footage shared on Snapchat, captioned 'Glad it was just me courtesy car', shows the farmer flipping the silver car as a topless man angrily kicks his tractor.

The farmer then proceeds to push the car down the road on its side, before dumping it and spinning around.

At this point, the topless fella continues to bang on the tractor, and as it turns around it scythes him to the ground.

His protests were in vain.

The farmer then drives back to his land over the broken glass and debris, as if it's the most normal thing in the world.

The incident took place near Barnard Castle in County Durham on Saturday (5 June) and police are now investigating.

A Durham Constabulary spokesperson told LADbible: "We were alerted to reports of an incident at a farm in the Teesdale area shortly after 5.45pm on June 5.

"Officers attended the scene and an investigation into the circumstances is ongoing."

The dramatic scenes were apparently an escalation of an ongoing row between the farmer and a group of youths, who had previously damaged his property, according to reports.

A source told MailOnline: "The lads had parked their car onto his drive.

"He asked them to move but they didn't seem to want to obey.

"He had no choice but to take matters into his own hands and remove the ruffians from his property himself."

Dairy farmer Mark Nicholson added: "There's a lot more to this story. He's a friend of a colleague - he's been driven mad by these lot starting fires, pushing walls over... just to name a few things.

"Not saying it's right but they pushed him to the end of his tether."

The clip has divided opinion.

The video was shared on Twitter by Radio 2 host Jeremy Vine, and people have been dishing out their opinions on the barney.

One person said: "There was an easier solution to this, farmer should have chained and padlocked his gate closed.

"Stopping the car from leaving then waited for car owner to knock on his door, he could've then charged him whatever amount to open the gate.

"No court, no lawyer bills."

Another commented: "As satisfying as it is to see someone... get his just desserts, this is definitely criminal damage and perhaps even GBH when he hits him with the vehicle."

While a third disagreed: "I fully condone this. Well done farmer for getting rid of this car in front of his gate."
