A hilarious photo of the black BMW stuck between the fence and farm gates has been shared online. North Wales Live reports it serves as a warning to drivers who may be considering heading to the countryside now coronavirus restrictions have been eased.
It’s great be welcoming everyone in Wales back to our corner of heaven but please don’t be a plonker and park in front of farm gates
Emily Durrant, Wales Green Party councillor
Locals praised the farmer for his quick thinking.
Janet Evans said on Facebook: “Well done, people should have more respect for other people.”
Gwen Evans wrote: “Nice one, teach them to respect other people’s things.”
But others think he should’ve gone even further.
Eifz O’Hare wrote: “Should have put lock and chains around it too!”
And Louise Hughes added: “I would have left it until they got back and left my number for the owners to call me.
“Also a padlock and chain would have been involved!”
Emily Durrant, Wales Green Party councillor for the area, said: “It’s great be welcoming everyone in Wales back to our corner of heaven 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. When farmers can’t tend to their livestock it makes them a little upset. Fair enough.”
The councillor said the fence was removed after the photo was taken, but the farmer in Llangor, north Wales, wanted to make a point with the message.
The councillor added: “We are very welcoming of visitors, they are very important to our local economy and they bring a lot to the area.
“But people must respect the fact rural areas consist of working landscapes and they should be treated as such. It’s the same as parking in front of someone’s storefront.
“It’s an amusing picture, but the message behind it is a serious one. All we ask is for people to be considerate when travelling to rural areas and to be mindful of their surroundings.”
