An angry farmer took revenge on a driver who had blocked access to his gate by building an entire fence around their BMW.

The parked-up vehicle was left empty directly in front of the gates to farmland in the countryside in Wales.

Rather than wait for the car to be moved, the farmer instead sent a message to visitors by rigging up the makeshift fence to block the vehicle in.

Reacting to the farmer’s revenge, Green party councillor Emily Durrant, who represents Llangors, Mid Wales, says tourists must "respect" working landscapes.

She 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."

Durrant, of Powys County Council, said that the fence was later removed after a photo was taken of the car.

She 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."
