A farmer took matters into his own hands to remove a car which was abandoned after it crashed into his field.

The Audi A4 ran off the road and on to farmland used for raising livestock.

The fence was broken, leaving the field unsecured. The driver apparently got out and fled the scene.

Forklift and tractor removal

Instead of waiting for the driver to return, the farmer flung the car from his field in Ampthill, Bedfordshire on Sunday using a tractor and forklift.

Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertforshire Roads Policing Unit tweeted photographs of the silver saloon being hoisted into the air.

They said: “If you are going to crash into a farmers field with livestock and cause damage then run from the scene over night leaving the field insecure do not expect your vehicle to be recovered with too much care!”

Police are still trying to find the car’s driver.
