A farmer with an axe to grind has made an “impressive” move after finding a BMW parked in front of their gate.
Emily Durrant, a councillor in Llangors, Wales, shared a photo of the BMW parked in the countryside on her Twitter account.
“It's great to be welcoming everyone in Wales back to our corner of heaven,” she tweeted.
“But please don't be a plonker and park in front of farm gates. It is a working landscape, not just a fun place to be.”
Pictured is the BMW parked in front of a farm gate with a temporary gate built around it.
“When farmers can't tend to their livestock it makes them a little upset. Fair enough,” she tweeted.
Cr Durrant told Wales Online parking in front of a farm gate was “the same as parking in front of someone's storefront”.
"It's an amusing picture, but the message behind it is a serious one,” she told the publication.
“All we ask is for people to be considerate when travelling to rural areas and to be mindful of their surroundings."
On Twitter, people found the photo amusing.
“I'm 100 per cent behind every farmer trying to protect their right of way,” one man tweeted.
One woman called the BMW driver “an absolute plank”, adding it appears there is “about an acre of space around them”, while one man called the move “impressive”.
