Farmer Barricades Travellers With Tractor After They Refuse To Leave His Land

Master of his domain! After they entered his land and refused to leave, a furious farmer barricaded a group of travelers in with twelve tractors.

Chris Awdry, 53, took direct action when the travellers – who had arrived with six caravans – told him he would need a court order to shift them.

He turned to police but they said it was a civil matter and refused to get involved.

So Chris called in his staff to drive the tractors around the edge of the 1.5-acre site and block them in as police watched.

And less than three hours after arriving the travellers decided it was time to leave the land in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.

Mr Awdry, who rents the land, said: “They went in and they were ruining the land and we wanted them out.

“The owner of the land didn’t want them there and we did what we could to protect the land.

Ridiculous? Yes. But the travelers’ demands that Awdry get a court order, as well as the cops’ refusal to get involved, is even more ridiculous. Sometimes you have to fight crazy with crazy.
